Science Foundation Ireland signs ORCID Funders Open Letter

Irish ORCID consortium members Science Foundation Ireland have signed the ORCID Funders Open Letter, committing to implement ORCID best practices in the organisations’ workflows.

Funding bodies are in a unique position to provide incentives to researchers to adopt ORCID iDs and to deliver system wide benefits. A handful of funding bodies around the world require the submission of ORCID iDs to apply for funding, and others support ORCID in their systems without such a mandate.

The signatories of the ORCID Funders Open Letter recognize that funding bodies collectively could do more to support the ORCID initiative. This open letter shows a public commitment to ORCID.
