The Australian ORCID Consortium invites you to learn more about the Australian National PID Strategy and Roadmap in this information session with the ARDC. 

About the event 

With 44 member organisations across Australia, and over 172,000 ORCID iDs connected by member integrations, ORCID plays a significant role in Australia’s higher education and research sector.  

In 2022, the Australian Access Federation (AAF) as the Australian ORCID Consortium Lead, and the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC), commissioned a report into incentives for the adoption of persistent identifiers (PIDs) by the Australian research sector. This report led to the development of the Australian National PID Strategy and Roadmap.  

We invite our ORCID members to learn how they can contribute to the Australian National PID Strategy, and how to better utilise data derived from research to harness the potential offered by PIDs.  

Join the AAF and the ARDC to discuss the collaborative process behind the National PID Strategy and Roadmap, and how it will help harness Australia’s research capability to address the nation’s pressing economic, social, health and environmental challenges, by mapping our researchers, organisations, research services and infrastructure.  

Please register to find out more on how you can get involved, plus a Q&A with the AAF and ARDC.
