A THOR-ENVRIplus Bootcamp


thor-envriplus (3)Are you working in a technical or leading role within an Environmental Research Infrastructure? Join us at Aalto University in Finland on March 28-29, 2017 to learn more about ORCID integrations and discuss best practices with colleagues from other Environmental Research Infrastructures.

Project THOR supports seamless integration between articles, data and researchers across the research lifecycle. ENVRIplus brings together Environmental and Earth System Research Infrastructures, projects and networks to create an interoperable cluster of Environmental Research Infrastructures across Europe. These two H2020 projects are joining forces by organising a bootcamp focused on ORCID integrations in Environmental Research Infrastructures.

The two day event offers a unique opportunity for knowledge exchange between persistent identification experts from THOR partner organisations (in particular ORCID and DataCite) and the managers, as well as developers, of Environmental Research Infrastructures, in particular ENVRIplus partners.

The bootcamp has a strong emphasis on ORCID integrations and will touch upon the specific challenges Environmental Research Infrastructures are facing in regard of such integrations. The bootcamp also focuses on the technical aspects of implementing ORCID integrations. In addition to infrastructure managers, we thus strongly encourage developers to participate as well.

Topics related to ORCID integration, such as ORCID use in metadata relevant to Research Infrastructures, identification of co-authors, or crosslinking persistent identifiers will also be discussed. We encourage participants to provide us with input on bootcamp topics. You can enter suggestions when you register for the bootcamp here.

Depending on your input, we will tailor the bootcamp to your needs. On March 28, the target audience will be both managers and developers whereas on the second day (March 29) we will run two parallel sessions: an infrastructure developer and an infrastructure manager session. A detailed agenda will be shared with you soon!

The THOR-ENVRIplus team is looking forward to seeing you in Finland!
