    Meeting objectives
    This Interest Group focuses on raising awareness around the wider topic of science communication and particularly science communication for research data with the RDA community. 
    This Plenary session aims to kick-off a discussion on the current state of practice in science communication for research data, help identify gaps and requirements, and shed light on the actors and stakeholders involved, their incentives and drivers. 
    It also brings into the spotlight the efforts around professionalising the role of science communicators working with research data. 

    Please indicate at least (3) three breakout slots that would suit your meeting.
    Breakout 5, Breakout 7, Breakout 11, Breakout 13
