Short introduction describing the scope of the group and if any previous activities:

The Research Data Architectures in Research Institutions Interest Group is primarily concerned with technical architectures for managing research data within universities and other multi-disciplinary research institutions. It provides insight into the approaches being taken to the development and operation of such architectures and their success or otherwise in enabling good practice.
The main themes of the IG are:
- Exploring how diverse tools, technologies, and services can be integrated to meet the evolving needs of researchers in research institutions.
- Considering interoperability between institutional research data infrastructures and (inter)national or discipline-based infrastructures
- Understanding the different institutional approaches to governance structures and business processes in responding to research ICT demands (e.g. capacity planning/forecasting for storage)
- Sharing case studies of solutions developed by data infrastructure projects in research institutions
- Presenting technical innovations and ideas that can further the development of integrated research data infrastructures
- Agreeing best practice relating to research data architectures in research institutions

This group is also for discussion about nuts and bolts of the research data infrastructures used in the local research infrastructures.

Meeting objectives:

Special topic of the session:”Impact of Institutional Policies and Governance on Research Data Management Infrastructure Development”. 
Another main part of the session include case statements and lightning talks on architecture solutions and projects in research institutions.
General objectives of the meeting:
- Share examples of good practices relating to research data architectures via case studies of institutions
- Discuss in particular institutional RDM policies and governance, RDM architectures, challenges, and use cases
- Plan governance survey in the future (to determine how institutions are currently set up and who are the people with the authority to decide institutional architectures)
- IG activities; Situation of the IG charter, joint activities worth to other RDA groups
- Identification of additional partners

Meeting agenda:

1. Brief introduction to the group (5 min.)
2. Case presentations from the research institutions (30 min.)
- Information and Data Repository Platform (IDRP) - distributed data repository, Rossella Aversa, KIT - Karlsruhe Institute for Technology
- Possible lighting talks from the audience
3. Topic: Impact of Institutional Policies and Governance on Research Data Management Infrastructure Development (50 min.)
- General discussion
- Governance survey
4. IG activities (5 min.)

Target audience: The target audience of this meeting may include all those people who are involved research data infrastructure projects or services as well as users who are interested in the topic of systems, technologies and data flows as a part of the research data infrastructures and their governance. For example research data infrastructure project owners or product owners, project managers, IT architects, data engineers, data managers, data scientists, developers and service users who are interested in technology issues are typical target audience of this meeting.
