2018 ORCID Consortium Workshop

On January 17-18, ORCID is hosting our first-ever consortium workshop at Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT) in Lisbon, Portugal. The purpose of this workshop is to share experiences and build community among our consortia.

Consortia provide regional context to the adoption of ORCID and global capacity to scale implementation. Consortia are essential to our mission. Ultimately – through effective use of ORCID – our goal is to improve how research information is shared.

We look forward to seeing you in Lisbon!

Please note that participation in this event is by invitation only.
