Come and join us at the Università degli Studi di Roma “La Sapienza” in Rome, Italy, on November 15th 2017 to learn about how we have advanced the state of the art in persistent identifiers. You will find out about how THOR partners have developed new tools to connect identifiers across systems, to link people, datasets, samples, reactions and more.

Keynote speeches by Fiona Murphy and Herbert van de Sompel will show the importance of persistent identifiers in the broader scholarly comms infrastructure. A mix of demos, expert talks and discussion panels will highlight THOR’s achievements, PID integrations and services.

If you would like to hear everything about the latest PID developments, join us in Rome!

Project THOR

THOR ( a 30 month project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme. It will establish seamless integration between articles, data, and researchers across the research lifecycle. This will create a wealth of open resources and foster a sustainable international e-infrastructure. The result will be reduced duplication, economies of scale, richer research services, and opportunities for innovation.
