Funders play a critical role, along with universities and publishers, in building and supporting the infrastructure to support open research. Major funders, such as the European Commission, agree that persistent identifiers for people and works are necessary components of this infrastructure.

ORCID provides researchers the tools to link their ORCID iD to their funding awards and a growing number of funders are integrating ORCID identifiers into grants application and post-award reporting workflows or are planning to do so. Using ORCID functionality helps to streamline reporting processes  during grant application, and, after award, to enable outcomes reporting.

This webinar is designed to connect funders who are integrating ORCID identifiers or are looking to do so.
