    Meeting objectives
    This session aims to renew the activities of the proposed Science Communication for Research Data Interest Group. Following past scoping sessions held during previous RDA Plenaries, this session is meant to discuss the charter of the proposed group, potential connections to other RDA WG and IG and address specifically the topic of data visualisation for science communication. 
    Science communication is a shared responsibility and shared opportunity, it supports researchers in the dissemination and outreach around their work, increasing citations and enabling collaboration. Similar drivers apply in the case of science performing organisations and funders. 
    Whether it relates directly to the findability and accessibility of research data (the F and A in FAIR), increasing inclusiveness or data literacy, there is a clear need to define and differentiate what science communication means to other actors and stakeholders such as journalists and science communicators, policy makers, citizen scientists and the general public.
