Short introduction describing any previous activities: 

At P13 we discussed how we can harmonize the methods of access to data of repositories in a machine-actionable way for analytical workflows. We agreed, that direct and repository-agnostic access to data is an essential feature for data reuse and a prerequisite for many data-related tasks, like transfer of data for processing and analysis, co-scheduling of data transfer and computing and more. We agreed to not reinvent existing technology, but to reuse and orchestrate existing approaches like protocols or specifications. A possible outcome could be a capacity negotiation protocol, that could be used by clients to choose one of the already existing access methods to the data.

Since P13 we had one VC to discuss the organizational implications of this mission (WG in RDA? How are we connected to existing RDA WGs/IGs and earlier group outputs/activities? Who can contribute?) Another VC is planned for end of August.
