DDI-CDI Webinar Series

May 2020

CODATA is collaborating with the DDI Foundation throughout 2020 on a series of webinars to support the public review of the DDI-Cross Domain Integration specification.

The goal is to provide background so that reviewers, especially those from outside the traditional DDI community, have enough information to give the new specification a considered review.

Some of these events are organised for the DDI community, others seek a wider audience and are convened in partnership with CODATA. The numbering below is indicative and may change as the dates for each webinar are finalised.
