Pitching the PID: Community Engagement in Project FREYA

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The European Commission-funded FREYA project (www.project-freya.eu) began in November 2017. It aims to extend the infrastructure for persistent identifiers to ensure that PIDs become a core component of open research in the European Union and around the world. This presentation will be delivered by a FREYA project representative from the British Library, and a FREYA Ambassador.

Section One (10 mins)
Community outreach is a vital part of the FREYA project. We need our material to make sense to librarians, policy-makers and researchers in disciplines ranging from nuclear physics to medieval history. In this section we’ll talk with you about our approach to community engagement, the evolution of the FREYA Knowledge Hub, our ambassador programme, and our quest for the perfect answer to that recurring question “what is a PID, and why should I care?”

Section Two (15 mins)
FREYA Ambassadors are highly qualified data specialists and academics in a wide range of research organisations around the world who have given up their time to champion FREYA’s cause. In this section, one of our Ambassadors shares their most effective and creative approaches to building understanding and use of PIDs in their own research community – and tells us the results.
