<p class="MsoNormal">I’ve just sent out calendar invitations for the next two TG MIDS meetings – meeting no. 8 this coming Thursday 1<sup>st</sup> July and meeting no. 9 on Thursday 5<sup>th</sup> August. They contain the Zoom details for each meeting, or if
 you prefer, below. Note, they are not the same for both meetings.<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class="MsoNormal">Elspeth and I discussed the agenda for this month’s meeting earlier today and I’ll write it up on Tuesday at the beginning of our cumulative notes of our meetings (here:

<p class="MsoNormal">As a heads-up: we’ll briefly discuss next steps on the ‘materialType’ proposed set of five information elements with a focus on gathering practical examples and how to transition to what we want in the future. Then we’ll move on to a first
 consideration of the MIDS 2 elements concerned with geography that will raise similar issues of consolidation and transition (issues 15-21,<br>
