THOR Final Event – Project THOR
Join us in Rome to learn about how we have advanced the state of the art in persistent identifiers. You will find out about how THOR partners have developed new tools to connect identifiers across systems, to link people, datasets, samples, reactions and more.
Keynote speeches by Fiona Murphy and Herbert van de Sompel will show the importance of persistent identifiers in the broader scholarly comms infrastructure. A mix of demos, expert talks and discussion panels will highlight THOR’s achievements, PID integrations and services.
