PID NL - A workshop on the use of Persistent Identifiers in the Netherlands.

20 Nov 2019

Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) are an important component of Open Science and FAIR data practices. PIDs ensure that entities within the research workflow are discoverable, citable, comprehensible, and connected.

In this workshop, we will provide an overview of the value of PIDs and the different PID types available, followed by demonstrations of PID implementations and examples of how to successfully increase PID awareness. After lunch, we’ll roll up our sleeves and break out in groups to start exploring what PIDs can do for you or your institution. 

Where? The Hague, NWO building

When? 20th of November 2019, 10:00 - 17:30 CET - Venue opens @09:30 hrs.

Who? Information Specialists, Librarians, Repository managers, CRIS managers, Policy makers, and everyone else interested in PIDs!

What? Presentations and interactive break-out sessions. Expect to go home with new PID plans!
