Data reuse – especially across organisational and domain boundaries – demands a wide range of information in several areas. While this is often generically referred to as “metadata,” that term covers a wide range of information serving different purposes within a data-sharing scenario. If the range of different functions can be understood, and the information requirements they present analysed, it will be possible to define a core set of metadata required for cross-domain data sharing and reuse.

Today, many popular standards and specifications address parts of this problem under the FAIR banner, but there is not yet a coherent picture of how these can be used together to provide sufficient metadata support. This workshop will explore how this idea of a core metadata framework can be better defined, and will identify solutions and challenges for realising a sufficient set of models for facilitating all needed aspects of cross-domain data reuse.
