The effective exchange of metadata is critical for supporting a FAIR data ecosystem where researchers can seamlessly search for and access research data held in multiple repositories. This becomes tricky when research data from different scientific disciplines are ingested, using a variety of standards, divergent formats, and multiple levels of granularity. While in an ideal world all metadata schemas and standards are fully interoperable, in reality they are not (yet).

During this webinar, Claudia Martens will share some practical experience based on the interdisciplinary discovery portal B2FIND, give some tips on how to support metadata exchange from the metadata aggregator perspective and will highlight some of the common issues that can hinder effective exchange. 

Registration is free and open to all however the main audience is repository managers and data service providers. Data stewards and developers may also find the session informative.
