Persistent Identifier Service
Initialization Phase
Supported by: 
NFDI Section Common Infrastructures

What does it do?

Persistent identifiers (PIDs) are central to FAIR research data management. However, different disciplines and different resources result in diverse requirements and the different NFDI consortia have different levels of maturity in PID implementation. PID4NFDI will design a work programme to build an NFDI foundation service on established PID infrastructures.

Goals of the Initialization phase

Within the initialization phase it is planned to lay the foundation for further phases through use cases analysis, requirement engineering and concept development. PID4NFDI will follow a clear path of promoting the uptake by PID infrastructures and service providers and will only develop and operate NFDI-specific services if necessary. The goal is to roll-out a portfolio of services that covers the various use cases and requirements of the NFDI consortia.

Planned duration (current phase)
