Funder metadata at 10: where are we and where to next? (Pecha Kucha)


EARMA Conference Oslo

Format: Pecha Kucha

Topic: Policy, Strategy, Evaluation and Foresight


Crossref has been working with funders to help tie grants to research outputs. This aims to help more accurate reporting and save time and manual data entry and searching for funders, research offices and researchers themselves. As part of this work, Crossref has been surveying funder members and the wider funder community to investigate what their needs are in terms of supporting their grantees. We’re also collaborating with other infrastructure organizations - ORCID, ROR and DataCite.

Those joining will hear about the work we're doing, the progress we’ve made in grant registration, grant identifiers and other methods of improving connections between different research objects, and the feedback we've received from funders in what they see their role being in supporting open infrastructure. Maybe you'll be surprised by the feedback, maybe not?!
