Short introduction describing the scope of the group and if any previous activities
At the 9th RDA Plenary in Barcelona, the Active DMPs IG ran a session on defining requirements for machine-actionable DMPs and established priorities so a series of working groups could be convened. Five ideas were put forward and two working groups were subsequently established.

The DMP common standards WG is in the wrapping up phase and the exposing DMPs WG is beginning to produce deliverables. It is now opportune to reconvene the IG to assure alignment between the groups, solicit feedback on emerging deliverables, and to gather consensus on next steps. Do these topics continue to be priority areas where more work is required, or should other ideas such as the domain specialisation and funder liaison be revisited? Further context on the general scope of the Active DMPs IG can be found in the case statement at: https://rd-alliance.org/group/active-data-management-plans/case-statemen...
