Europe PMC, one of the largest providers of high-performance search tools for life sciences literature, has announced that its Grant Finder now incorporates Research Organization Registry (ROR) IDs to help users find active and completed grants awarded by Europe PMC funders.
Four years ago, ROR was first introduced to the world at an open community meeting the day before PIDapalooza. Since then, we have continued to celebrate ROR’s anniversary every year with a big public event to bring together the broad network of ROR users and supporters and reinforce ROR’s commitment to developing open, sustainable, community-driven infrastructure.
ROR is excited to welcome two new members to its Steering Group this year: Joy Owango from the Training Centre in Communication (TCC Africa) and Natasha Simons from the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC).
2022 was a big year for ROR in many ways, but it was especially notable from a tech standpoint. In early 2022, we built tools and processes that allowed ROR to begin curating the registry separately from GRID, which quickly opened possibilities for tackling projects that had been waiting on the back burner until ROR became fully independent.
We are thrilled to introduce a new member of the ROR pride: Amanda French has joined ROR as our full-time Technical Community Manager.
ROR is excited to welcome three new Steering Group members: Lautaro Matas, Kathleen Shearer, and Chris Shillum. Inaugurated in late 2019, the ROR Steering Group is an advisory body that supports the registry’s strategic planning and decision-making activities.
The ROR registry has grown! We are excited to announce a new ROR registry release. With this update, the registry has grown to 102,559 records.
