Session Abstract

The value of crystallography is paramount in science exploration as indicated by its use in multiple scientific fields. It has the ability to “unify” science by fostering the research development from various backgrounds. Interdisciplinary research requires a common crystallographic language, ability to understand the crystallographic information, and data interoperability – the property that allows for the unrestricted sharing of resources or data between different systems. This session will focus on initiatives and schools which promote crystallographic knowledge and encourage the use of crystallographic data across disciplines and ages. The benefits, practical solutions and educatory initiatives whereby interdisciplinarity has been successfully achieved will be described. The use of software and data modification in order to achieve interoperability as well as descriptions of challenges which still hinder interdisciplinary research are welcomed.
