Being aware of the long tradition and experience in US and Canada on the communication related actions, we would like to welcome all of you to share your views on RI communication strategies, best practices in communication and liaison activities and especially on how to create partnerships and dialogues with industry and private sector users.

We are inviting RIs and observatories to present their communication strategies and activities with short 5-10 min presentations.
