Short introduction describing the scope of the group and if any previous activities:

The data fabric interest group is concerned with ongoing initiatives and discussions around reusable and adaptive components for data infrastructures, including conceptual frameworks for digital objects, metadata and PID management. The aims are to provide more effective and efficient solutions for the day-to-day problems of data management, providing added value for users not possible today due to gaps between repositories and other operational systems.
