ORCID in ORBIT : Building Information Infrastructure with Research Funders

Engagement by the funding community has steadily increased, with functionality to connect funding to ORCID, announcements by some funders of policies requiring ORCID, as well as participation in national-level ORCID consortia. We now have 34 funder members - boosted by the recent addition of the Health Research Alliance consortium - and 21 government organizations, most of which also act as funders. These organizations are a core component of our mission and vision. Linking funding information to ORCID iDs can help to streamline and improve funding acknowledgements and reporting, and there already more than 360,000 funding items attached to ORCID records. The partnership between ORCID and funders has recently become even closer, with the ORBIT (ORCID Reducing Burden and Increasing Transparency) project kicking off shortly.

The ORBIT Project deepens our work with the funding community. ORBIT aims to increase the efficiency of grant application workflows ; improve the ease of program data collection ; and promote research rigor and reproducibility. There are two components to the project :

  • Funder Working Group : Charged with exploring the use of identifiers in funder systems to enable information sharing, access, and accountability, through data models, policy, and communications resources
  • Pilot Projects : Practical identifier-based projects to demonstrate feasibility of information sharing in funding systems.
