ABOUT THE RESOURCE
The importance of PIDS - long-lasting references to a digital file or set of files - in building stable connections between research entities such as grants, projects, articles, or funders is recognized and addressed by several European Commission-funded projects.
This webinar (60 minutes) discusses new developments in the field of Persistent Identifiers, and why PIDs are important to the research community. In the webinar:
- Ketil Koop-Jakobsen, representing the European Commission-funded project, FREYA, which aims to extend the infrastructure for PIDs as a core component of open research in the EU and globally, introduces the findings of a survey of the current PID landscape and identifies needs for improved and new PIDs to support open research. See Koop-Jacobsen's presentation here.
- Iryna Kuchma, EIFL Open Access Programme Manager, discusses how the European Commission-funded OpenAIRE project is using PIDs for the discovery, enrichment and linking of research results. See Kuchma's presentation here.
- Amir Aryani, Director, Research Graph Foundation, discusses FREYA’s work on the PID Graph, talking about the discussion around the concept of the PID Graph itself and how FREYA partners are contributing to the set-up of the Graph. See Amir Aryani's presentation here.
