Researchers are at the heart of all we do at ORCID and never more so than this year — 2019 is our Year of the Researcher. We are focusing on increasing our understanding and more fully meeting the needs of our user community. And what better way of doing that than engaging directly with as many researchers as we can!?
We’re starting today at the National Postdoctoral Association meeting in Orlando, FL, where we will be talking to attendees about their use and experiences of ORCID. If you’re there, please be sure to stop by Table 4 and meet our Americas Engagement Team Lead, Ana Patricia Cardoso and our new User Experience Designer, Mallory Robertson.
We are also excited to be launching a competition to win a day with the ORCID team at our staff retreat in Sedona, AZ in October. We invite all researchers, anywhere in the world, and at any stage of your career, to tell us what you think of ORCID and why we should choose you to join us there.
We’ll pay travel expenses of up to US$2,500, plus two nights stay at the hotel where we’re meeting. You’ll get to spend a whole day with our awesome team! We’ll review all complete entries* received by May 10, 2019, and the winner will be announced in mid June.
So, what are you waiting for? Tell us why you should be the lucky one of our six million plus users to join us in Arizona! We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
*Please note that we are only able to consider entries in English.
