41 Australian institutions have now confirmed their intention to join the Consortium, which is expected to open in January 2016. The Australian Access Federation (AAF) has agreed to be the Consortium Lead.
The official agreement was signed during an ORCID session at eResearch attended by conference participants. Pictured signing the agreement at eResearch are Executive Director of ORCID Laurel L. Haak, PhD, and Heath Marks, General Manager at AAF.
The Australian ORCID Working Group would like to thank all those who have contributed to the progress of the Consortium so far.
