The main questions raised during the Webinar were about use cases and implementation issues of mobilityDCAT-AP, and its role in the wider ecosystem of NAPs and mobility data portals.

Furthermore, the importance of a common metadata infrastructure in the emerging mobility data ecosystem in Europe was mentioned.

The Working Group thanks the participants for the interest in mobilityDCAT-AP. The questions and comments raised are very important for the Working Group, in order to make this metadata specification acceptable and useful in the domain of National Access Points and other mobility data portals.

The participants are also invited to collaborate in the future progress of mobilityDCAT-AP, e.g., by joining the GitHub repository which has been established for the maintenance of mobilityDCAT-AP.

The Working Group will also inform about further progress and collaboration opportunities via the NAPCORE website.
