Create or connect your ORCID identifier in Je-S

Researchers can now create or connect their ORCID identifier in the Research Councils' grants system (Je-S).

An ORCID identifier (ORCID iD) is a unique string of numbers (a digital identifier) that distinguishes you from every other researcher - when a name isn't enough! Letting researchers create or connect their ORCID iD to our grants system is an important first step towards improving the flow of research information across the higher education sector.

There is no need to wait until you are applying for a new grant to create or connect your iD - we would encourage both current and past award holders to log-in to their Je-S account, which you can do at any time, and add your ORCID iD to your 'personal information' page now. New applicants will also see the option to 'create or connect your ORCID iD' when creating a new Je-S account.
