CODATA recently completed a European Open Science Cloud co-creation project which explored the potential uses and applications of the draft Data Documentation Initiative Cross-Domain Integration (DDI-CDI) specification for EOSC. The main output was a substantial report The Role of DDI-CDI in EOSC: Possible Uses and Applications which explores the challenges faced by EOSC and discusses a number of use cases/examples of the role that DDI-CDI can play.
The report was produced in close consultation with members of the DDI Alliance that developed the specification. A wide range of experts participated in workshops and intensive meetings, as detailed in the activity report produced for the EOSC Secretariat.
Documentation on DDI-CDI is available below. The DDI Alliance aim to publish the production release in June/July 2021.
The report will be launched at a virtual workshop to be held at 13:00-15:00 UTC on Friday 11 June. This workshop will summarise the key findings and recommendations of the report; discuss the examples/case studies and how they may be further explored and tested; and identify next steps for trial implementations. The agenda and registration for the launch workshop will be announced in the near future. In the meantime, please save the date!
