Meeting title

Meeting of the Repository Platforms for Research Data IG: experiences with research data repositories in different institutions and domains

Short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group: 

The group fulfilled its original charter, the creation and publication of a matrix relating use cases with functional requirements for repository platforms for research data, after RDA P8. Its current focus is the collection of experiences with selecting, implementing, and using specific research data repository platforms/products across institutions and domains, with reference to the aforementioned functional requirements.
