The University of Hong Kong is sponsoring a regional workshop on ORCID, an international effort to connect research and researchers by providing a public registry of unique person identifiers. The purpose of this event is to learn more about ORCID and its adoption by universities, to discuss institutional views of ORCID adoption, and to provide ideas and resources for local outreach and integration efforts. Local and international speakers. Agenda to come soon.


Intended audience: UGC Research managers, funders, library staff, IT staff, and researchers.


ORCID ( provides a free Registry where researchers may obtain a unique and persistent identifier. ORCID works with the research community to ensure that these identifiers become embedded in research workflows such as manuscript submissions and grant applications, to automate the connection between researchers and their works, and improve discoverability in scholarly communications. ORCID is an independent non-profit organization, unique in its ability to bridge disciplines, research sectors and national boundaries.
