Consortia Interest Group
The Consortia Interest Group (CIG) is a quarterly meeting and platform to share and discuss ORCID and consortia-driven strategies, opportunities, challenges, and ideas.
Consortia Interest Group structure
The Consortia Interest Group (CIG) consists of up to 2 representatives from each of our consortia lead organizations. The group meets quarterly in two different sessions to adequate participants’ different time zones.
Aims and Focus
With the CIG, we aim to improve on the current ORCID consortium model, gather input on new initiatives and improve communication and foster the sharing of best practices across our global consortia community. The CIG will also help ORCID gather and incorporate feedback from our consortia community when developing new processes, strategies, tools, and communication materials.
In the same way we consider ORCID consortia to be “communities of practice” within their respective regions, the CIG is a larger “community of communities of practice,” providing a direct collaborative channel for participating consortium leads to share approaches, strategy, best practices, and for ORCID to discuss with leads topics such as, but not limited to:
- Value to members, lead workload, processes and responsibilities
- Product and feature suggestion and prioritization
- Consortia membership fee models
- Consortia and member maturity model
- Global equity.
