    Collaborative session notes:
    The session will run in two parts:

    40 minutes of lightning talks describing current digital activities in chemistry
    40 minutes of discussion: Future Visioning for CRDIG, effectively and actively bridge
    between RDA and other activities in digital chemistry space going forward

    Speakers from eight from different active projects will be invited to do lightning talks, for example:

    NFDI4Chem (National Research Data Infrastructure Consortium Chemistry project, Germany)
    PSDS (Physical Sciences Data science Service, UK)
    IUPAC projects (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry)

    InChI, SMILES+, Machine-Accessible Periodic Table, FAIRSpec, Gold Book

    UK Catalysis Hub (Cardiff University, UK)
    Four others to be invited

    Meeting objectives
    As the move to open science and FAIR data accelerates, there are new activities in the chemical domain that are important to share with the RDA community.  This session will present many of these activities as a series of lightning talks, and each speaker will be asked to identify questions they have for attendees.  The hope is that this review of current activities will allow participants to identify common issues, alignments, and opportunities and receive input and feedback from other RDA groups.
