This deliverable seeks to review the existing research data cataloguing efforts across the Research Infrastructures, concentrating on those RIs in the five Cluster project: ENVRI-FAIR for environmental research; PaNOSC for photon and neutron open science; ESCAPE for astronomy and particle physics; SSHOC for social sciences and humanities and EOSC-Life for biomedicine and life science. We describe metadata standards for cataloguing, catalogue and repository distinctions and approaches to

We conclude with pointers to overarching trends and concerns within the Clusters that the EOSC Portal will need to address; the ultimate goal of this task is to encourage cross-RI adoption of common metadata interoperability guidelines. These guidelines should leverage existing OpenAIRE guidelines for content providers, as well as being congruent with community standards and practices (eg. and EDMI). This report is based upon the outputs of three collaborative workshops and some detailed desk-based research. -
