DDI workshop in Leibniz

The Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) is holding a Train the Trainers workshop in Leibniz in September. The workshop, 'Broadening Community Capacity and Adapting Training to Meet Institutional Needs' will take place September 24-28 in the Leibniz Center for Informatics, and the goal is to build up more training capacity on DDI. The new trainers should then be able to teach specific tutorials for their institution or general purpose tutorials for a broader audience.

The Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) is an international standard for describing the data produced by surveys and other observational methods in the social, behavioral, economic, and health sciences. DDI can document and manage different stages in the research data lifecycle, such as conceptualization, collection, processing, distribution, discovery, and archiving.

The DDI Alliance can provide support to participants by covering a workshop fee if the participant plans to teach a tutorial or to organize a workshop on DDI in the year after the workshop. The Alliance is also making two travel grants available for exceptional cases when no other funding options are available.
