Ivo Wijnbergen will explain the advantages of the ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID), a unique and persistent identifier, and the ways of using it for assembling and combining a researcher’s all professional activities: institutions, grants, research projects, publications and research data. Integration of the ORCID with the biodiversity platform PlutoF will be presented together with the team of digital archives of the UT Natural History Museum.

Information about the activities of the RDA (The Research Data Alliance) and about possibilities for involving researchers in the RDA work and interest groups can be found at the seminar registration desk. Starting from this October, the University of Tartu is the national RDA Europe node in Estonia; in order to support the sharing of research data, the library would be happy to advise everybody in the interaction and cooperation of the RDA social and technical networks.
