Re: [rda-matdatainfrainterop-ig][imrr-wg] Re: [rda-matdatainfrainterop-ig][imrr-wg] RDA Plenary 11, Berlin 21-23 March

Dear Gerhard,
Thank you for joining the IMRR WG and the WG will host a session at the upcoming RDA P11 in Berlin.
We welcome the participation of EMMC & EMCC at the session (time hasn’t been set yet) and in developing the agenda.
So far, the tentative agenda plans to include a review of the final report of the WG to be submitted to RDA as well as possible next steps to expand participation in the Materials Resource Registries. Perhaps this would be of interest to either or both EMMC & EMCC?
