NIH and ORCID are working together to broaden connections to the array of research and career data typically reported on CVs, and to enhance integrations with other systems using these data. This includes collaborating, along with other funders in the US and around the world, on the ORCID Reducing Burden and Improving Transparency (ORBIT) project to link researchers to their funding and other research and career activities using verified and structured data.  

This will enable a stronger infrastructure to:

  • Encourage development of better productivity measures to incentivize openness, rigor, and impact
  • Enable tracking of the impact of investments in research and professional development through transparently-curated open data
  • Support collaboration and networking services to build efficient and equitable markets for reviewers, collaborators, mentors, etc.
  • Maintain researcher control of their own data and how it is used across platforms
  • Reduce researcher burden when applying for funds and maintaining multiple profiles


  • How and why the NIH and other funders are collaborating with ORCID to link researchers with their funding and other research activities
  • What this announcement means for research institutions like yours - and your researchers
  • How your institution can get involved and help reduce the burden on researchers during the grant application process and in other workflows


Leaders in the areas of research, information technology, scholarly communications and digital infrastructure at US-based research institutions. As always, others are welcome to attend.


The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the nation’s medical research agency — making important discoveries that improve health and save lives.


ORCID’s vision is a world where all who participate in research and innovation, from imagining to building and managing, are uniquely identified and connected to their contributions across disciplines, and borders, and time. ORCID provides an identifier for individuals to use with their name as they engage in research and innovation activities. We provide open tools that enable transparent and trustworthy connections between researchers, their contributions, and affiliations. We provide this service to help people find information and to simplify reporting and analysis.
