ORCID is a not-for-profit organization, sustained by fees from our member organizations (https://orcid.org/about).
ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID iD) throughout the career for all persons involved in research, innovation or academic activities. The ORCID ID is a unique alphanumeric code assigned to the researcher's name.
You can connect your iD with your professional information — affiliations, grants, publications, peer review, and more. You can use your iD to share your information with other systems, ensuring you get recognition for all your contributions, saving you time and hassle, and reducing the risk of errors.
The University of Fribourg recommends creating the ORCID identifier and linking it to the directory web page through MyUnifr.
The Swiss National Science Foundation asks applicants to enter their ORCID iD when applying for funds.
SNSF will run a pilot program to test a standardized CV format called SciCV. The pilot will concern all applicants for the project funding in biology and medicine call for proposals with submission deadline 1 April 2020. Applicants will require an ORCID identifier to access the submission platform.
