Pablo de Castro (University of Strathclyde), Laura Rothfritz, research assistant and PhD candidate at the Berlin School of Library and Information Science at Humboldt University Berlin, Joachim Schöpfel (Université de Lille) and I will do a study on Risks and Trust in pursuit of a well functioning Persistent Identifier infrastructure for research commissioned by Knowledge Exchange (KE). The project aims to identify the best possible strategic and operational paths to achieve a well-functioning PID infrastructure for KE member states and beyond. The KE partners are six key national organisations within Europe tasked with developing infrastructure and services to enable the use of digital technologies to improve higher education and research: CSC in Finland, CNRS in France, DeiC in Denmark, DFG in Germany, Jisc in the UK and SURF in the Netherlands.
The project will be led by me, Laura Rothfritz is a proven expert in the field of Persistent Identifiers (and author of an excellent bachelor thesis on the subject), Joachim Schöpfel and Pablo de Catro are besides other qualifications euroCRIS representatives. euroCRIS, founded in 2002, is an international not-for-profit association, that brings together experts on research information in general and research information systems (CRIS) in particular.
The project starts at the end of September this year and will take about fifteen months until its completion. Here you will find some information on scidecode’s clients & partners.
