In this series, we bring together some of our partner organizations to share the ways that, by working together, we can improve information-sharing, reduce the administrative burden on researchers and their institutions, and make the world a “PIDder” place.

Join us on 21 February to hear how  Altum, a cloud software for research grants management, is integrated with ORCID and aids the research funding process for both funders and researchers. The American Heart Association will discuss how AHA benefits from ORCID and Altum working together.
