Would you like to help others enjoy the full power of persistent identifiers? A core component of the THOR project is two-way community involvement and with that in mind we’re happy to be launching the THOR project Ambassador Programme.
THOR ambassadors will help shape the way we look at the persistent identifier landscape, influence new services, and help us understand where we are doing well and where we could do better. We’re interested in requirements, use cases, and success stories from researchers through to funders, publishers, universities, data-centres and beyond. We’re trying to get the message out there, encourage best practice and drive adoption. A keen set of Ambassadors will be integral to achieving these goals.
Ambassadors will spread the word within their own communities, encourage adoption of PIDs and provide community specific training and advice. They will help their peers understand the reasoning behind and realise the full potential of PIDs such as ORCIDs and DOIs They could even help out with implementation where appropriate.
Ambassadors will form a community of like minds with the support and backing of the THOR project partners. They will be provided with up to date materials to help them with their work and will be able to call on the expertise of the project members when necessary. We’ll be organising events and workshops all over Europe, so there will be plenty of opportunities to meet the team and other ambassadors in your region.
