A series of online events in early 2023 which will present four workflows, each of which is intended to showcase a possible future, in which persistent identifiers (PIDs) are used throughout the research lifecycle to enable automation, efficiency, new discovery tools, and analysis.

This first online event will be run in partnership with OASPA and will:

  • Raise awareness of the workflows, in particular the publishing workflow
  • "Humanise” them through use of stories, etc
  • Demonstrate value of PID implementations to publishers - and/or costs of not implementing them

Events in this series

Each webinar will be run in collaboration with a relevant organisation (OASPA, ARMA, UKRI, and ARDC) and focus on one of the following workflows:

  • Content Publication
  • International Research Management
  • Funding
  • Data

These workflows offer a vision of a PID-optimised future, created with the goal to inspire all those working to support research and innovation to consider how they could use powerful, global, open research information infrastructures in new ways to improve the health and resilience of the ecosystem

Further dates will be confirmed soon
