The development of DDI Cross Domain Integration (DDI-CDI) has allowed for the application of DDI standards to data not only within the traditional social, behavioural, and economic domains, but also to data from many other areas of research. Increasingly, data is being re-used across traditional domain boundaries, raising a number of complicated challenges for data documentation. CODATA - the data-focused arm of the International Science Council - has identified DDI-CDI as an important tool in establishing guidelines and a community of practice to facilitate cross-domain data sharing, and will highlight it in the soon-to-be-launched Decadal Programme: Making Data Work for Cross-Domain Grand Challenges (https://codata.org/initiatives/strategic-programme/decadal-programme/).

The use of DDI-CDI will be highlighted in the initial case studies around infectious disease, resilient cities, and the use of global policy monitoring data in research. This talk outlines the growing collaboration between this international initiative and the DDI Alliance around DDI-CDI.
