Joint showing of the Open Science Lunch: Open your research with ORCID
Presenter: Dr Ivana Malovic from the Library for Medicine and Science at University of Oslo Library,

Publishers ask for it when you are submitting your manuscript. Funding agencies ask for it when you are applying for grants. But what is ORCID? What are the benefits of having it? How can it help open up your research?

Lunch will be served in the auditorium for a joint viewing of this digital Open Science Lunch. Make sure to log in with your own device if you wish to ask questions to the online Q&A session afterwards.
