CLARIN ERIC adopted the RDA outputs of the Data Fabric Interest Group. 


CLARIN ERIC is a European research infrastructure for the social sciences and humanities. Our goal is to store and make Language Data available through repositories and tools for researchers. There are lots of language data  and many tools available that can process these data. Our challenge was to document this and make it easy to access for humans AND machines. The RDA Data Fabric outputs fit well with the CLARIN ecosystem. To cross connect datasets from neighbouring communities such as DARIAH and Europeana. Making the dataflow work, ensuring interoperability.
