HMC FAIR Friday with Dr Tibor Kálmán (GWDG)



Speaker: Dr Tibor Kálmán, GWDG, Göttingen, Germany

Title: Persistent identifiers (PIDs): sustainable referencing and value-added services

Date: Friday, 18 March 2022, 1 p.m. CET

To stimulate and support interdisciplinary exchange, the Helmholtz Metadata Collaboration (HMC) in close cooperation with the Helmholtz Information & Data Science Academy (HIDA) is organising the HMC FAIR Friday lecture series. It is aimed at experienced actors in research data management as well as scientists from all research fields of the Helmholtz Association and beyond.

HMC FAIR Friday will feature talks by high-ranking national and international speakers who will bring all participants (even) closer to the world of FAIR data, deepen individual aspects and stimulate discussions.

This presentation will focus on basic concepts of referencing objects by Persistent Identifiers (PIDs). It briefly discusses aspects of sustainability and talks about why so many PID platforms exist. It also demonstrates some added value services based on PIDs, as well as highlights practical experiences and discusses open issues.

After the talk, we invite you to a virtual get-together with the speaker at HMC-Gathertown.
