"There can be risk and trust related concerns within the current PID landscape. To explore this, the Knowledge Exchange commissioned consultants, scidecode science consulting, to undertake a study which examines the world of PIDs with an emphasis on its risks and trust-related issues. The resulting report will be accompanied by a series of case studies which aim to provide a greater understanding of the wider PID landscape. 'The role of research funders in the consolidation of the PID landscape' is the first case study in this series.
Research funders will likely play an important role in the gradual adoption of an ever wider range of PIDs across European countries. From raising awareness of the role of PIDs through to implementation of best practices, this case study examines what this key task involves.
The study explores topics such as the endorsement of PIDs by research funders and opportunities for cross-funder collaboration. Additionally it looks at the potential divergences in the technical workflows for PID adoption among others.
Research funders' involvement is seen as critical for ensuring widespread adoption of the more technical PIDs, that are likely to see a bottom-up implementation with researchers in the lead. International coordination across national research funders is crucial as they are ideally placed to identify researchers' best practices and to further promote them in specific disciplines. Understanding what funders believe to be the main issues around risks and trust will guide us in formulating further recommendations.
