FREYA proudly presents: The power of PIDs

FREYA is a 3-year EU project that aims to build the infrastructure for persistent identifiers (PIDs) as a core component of Open Science. The work of FREYA will improve discovery, navigation, retrieval, and access of research resources. The project team is currently working on the establishment of new PID types, and on connecting existing and new PIDs into a PID Graph. PIDapalooza is the place to be to discuss our work with other PID-tellectuals and provide new directions to it.

Our session covers three parts which will be hosted by speakers from various FREYA partners: First, we will start with a discussion lead by Christine Ferguson (EBI) on the use cases for new PID types FREYA has recently collected. Then, Martin Fenner (Datacite) will present how new and existing PIDs can be integrated into the PID Graph that FREYA is developing. Lastly, Eliane Fankhauser (DANS) will encourage the PIDapaloozans to join the PID Forum to continue the discussion during and after the festival season.                              
Note to the organisers: Please note that this session can stand alone, but would also work well in tandem with another session proposed by the FREYA project (see separate proposal relating to the PIDagogy of FREYA).
