Starting December 2016, researchers have been able to synchronize selection of their research information from the research database to ORCID. Some 2 800 researchers have opted to do so (guide is available here). ORCID practices and ongoing projects related to identifiers and research funding were discussed in Nordics ORCID workshop on May 29th, 2018. This is my report from the workshop and how some of the topics relate to work done at the University of Helsinki and nationally:..."
