Short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group

The Earth, space, and environmental science communities are developing, through multiple international efforts, both general and domain-specific leading practices for data management, infrastructure development, vocabularies, and common data/digital services. This Interest Group will work towards coordinating and harmonizing these efforts to reduce possible duplication, increase efficiency, share use cases, and promote partnerships and adoption in the community.

Meeting objectives:

  1. Provide update on the current status of the IG.
  2. Invite attendees to add new projects to our catalogue of Earth, Space and Environmental Communities building data infrastructures.
  3. Provide updates on active projects (known and new)
  4. Determine common themes across the Earth, Space and Environmental  communities building Data Infrastructures and Services.
  5. Establish a mechanism to share project information and assess any dependencies, overlaps, and gaps. This needs to include allowing multiple efforts that are similar to proceed.
  6. How do we best manage potential collaborations with other RDA Working Groups and Interest Groups, given that the ESES IG overlaps with so many technically but our content is different.
  7. Establish Next Steps
