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 are essential to the ORCID mission. They provide regional context to the adoption of open research and the capacity to implement ORCID on a global scale. The purpose of this workshop is to build community, to share experiences and encourage collaboration, and ultimately – through effective use of ORCID – to improve how research information is shared.
- Current: Denmark, UK, Sweden, Finland, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, South Africa, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, US, Canada, Norway, Brazil
- In various stages: Portugal, France, Poland, Slovakia, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Russia
We look forward to seeing you in Lisbon!
Please note that participation in this event is by invitation only.
Avenida do Brasil, 101
January 17 Program
0900 Welcome and Introductions
1000 Setting the Stage: A Short History of ORCID Consortia
1030 Building Consortia: Top Down and Bottom Up
"UK ORCID Consortium" presented by Neil Jacobs (Jisc), "Building Consortia: South Africa" presented by Guy Halse (TENET), and "ORCID as a Component of National Research Policy: The Brazilian Context" presented by Talita Oliveira (CAPES)
In some countries, ORCID is a considered component of national research policy. Jisc (UK) is leading a grass-roots largely DIY effort to build a community of practice. TENET (ZA) is enabling ORCID integration through the university trust and identity framework. CAPES (Brazil) is building a consortium to encompass funders, universities, and repositories. How do these approaches reflect national research contexts? How is success envisaged? Is the approach proving to be sustainable?
1100 Discussion moderated by Linda O’Brien (Griffith University)
1200 Engaging Researchers
"Australian ORCID Consortium: Communication and Engagement" presented by Elleina Filippi (Australian Access Federation), "Engaging Researchers the German Way: The ORCID Consortium in Germany and the ORCID DE Project" presented by Paul Vierkant (Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft), Poul Melchiorsen (Aalborg Universitet)
Centered on researcher control, ORCID provides researchers the tools to both distinguish themselves from others and to manage what information to share with whom. Consortia are charged with supporting members and ensuring that use of ORCID follows best practice as defined by the ORCID principles and collect and connect program. How are these principles and practices communicated with members? How do consortia engage with researchers? How is success measured and communicated?
1230 Discussion moderated by Katrine Weisteen Bjerde (CRIStin)
1300 Regional Lunches with ORCID
Enjoy a meal and sparkling conversation with ORCID staff and consortia in your region.

1515 Coffee break
1530 Building a Community of Practice: The “ORCID Lifestyle”
"ORCID @ PTCRIS" presented by Joao Mendes Moreira (FCT), "The New Zealand ORCID Hub" presented by Jason Gush (Royal Society Te Apārangi), "The Italian ORCID Consortium" presented by Paola Gargiulo (CINECA), "ORCID-CA: The ORCID Canada Consortium" presented by Clare Appavoo (Canadian Research Knowledge Network)
Consortia provide local relevance and global scalability. Each consortia has taken a specific journey to developing researcher awareness and adoption, and integration into research information systems. Portugal started with a funder mandate and from that developed a consortium. Canada has a clear joint statement of principles and established governance group to work on national policies. Italy created a national platform. New Zealand is developing a tool that can be used across a range of technical capabilities. What is the strategy for adoption? What are the goals? How has practice evolved? Have challenges been technological and/or social? What are your key experiences?
1615 Discussion moderated by Celeste Feather (Lyrasis)
