    Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group
    Lack of interoperability between tools/e-infrastructures presents a significant barrier to streamlining processes throughout the research lifecycle. These gaps prevent the comprehensive collection and incorporation of research data and metadata into the research record captured during the active research phase. Furthermore, it limits the scope for passing this data and metadata on to data repositories, thus undermining FAIR data principles and reproducibility. This IG is:
    A place to address interoperability between tools/e-infrastructures, leveraging PID and metadata infrastructure.
    A platform for research-supporting service providers and PID/open infrastructure organizations to outline use cases, explore challenges, and pool resources to provide reference and guidance to chart ways forward.
    A forum for dissecting the interoperability challenges through discussion of concrete case studies involving application of PIDS to tools in multiple communities of practice.

    Meeting objectives
    The Working with PIDs in Tools IG facilitates exchanges among research supporting platforms and tools that are interested in improving interoperability within the scholarly ecosystem through the integration of PIDs and metadata creation and reuse. 
    Following the format of the previous PIDs in Tools IG meetings, we will host a community session to share recent cases of PID implementation, discuss the challenges faced in their adoption, and explore opportunities for their broader integration.
    We have invited speakers from GFZ Potsdam, ARDC, UC Boulder, and DataCite to present recent developments in their respective work around the implementation of PIDINST, RAiD, DOI, and RRID through various initiatives and projects. 
    A significant portion of the session will be dedicated to a question-and-answer period, allowing for an in-depth discussion on PID-related topics.

    Please indicate at least (3) three breakout slots that would suit your meeting.
    Breakout 2, Breakout 3, Breakout 7, Breakout 8, Breakout 10, Breakout 13, Breakout 16, Breakout 17
