Getting started with your ORCID iD!

Are you an EUR researcher or EUR PhD? Then this workshop is for you!

ORCID provides researchers with a persistent unique identifier. ORCID iD prevents name ambiguity and reliably connects publications, datasets, and affiliations under a researcher’s record.

Learn in this workshop how to create and use your ORCID iD to enhance the discoverability of your research outputs.

This workshop will allow you - as a researcher - to reap the benefits of ORCID. Namely by:

  • Enhancing the discoverability and visibility of your research;

  • Preventing name ambiguity problems;

  • Saving time when applying for funding and/or publishing: enter your information once, re-use often!

Millions for research on impact of sustainability and climate change education

  • #educationalsciences
  • #environmentalscience
  • #mathematics

A large consortium led by Utrecht University has been awarded a 5 million euro Horizon Europe grant. The partners will develop an assessment framework to map the impact of sustainability and climate change education. The number of initiatives in this field has grown enormously, but due to a lack of insight into their quality, there is a great need for impact assessment. The IMP>ACT project has started in January and will run for four years.

Opportunities for education about sustainability and climate are plentiful since the UN's Decade of Education for Sustainable Development. Educational institutions and other organisations have increasingly more options to choose from when it comes to educational methods that seek to raise awareness of climate change and promote sustainable actions. Teachers want only the best for their students, but how do they make the right choice? How do they know if a certain method will indeed build their students’ competence to act, and think differently about climate change
