Organised as part of the upcoming EOSC-hub, FREYA, SSHOC joint event Realising the European Open Science Cloud, the EOSC Projects EXPO is the first virtual exhibition to showcase EOSC initiatives and projects, and is expected to generate significant knowledge exchange, synergies, and networking.



FREYA Ambassador Competition Winners

FREYA is delighted to announce the winners of the 2020 FREYA Ambassador Competition. Due to the high calibre of entries this year, we decided to award the prize to two winners, Claudia Alén Amaro of Instruct-ERIC and Luc Boruta of Thunken.



Guest webinar: CoronaWhy Knowledge Graph - 1st September 2020

CoronaWhy (https://www.coronawhy.org) is a globally distributed, volunteer-powered research organisation, trying to assist the medical community’s ability to answer key questions related to COVID-19. In this webinar, you will learn more about the CoronaWhy community, collaborative intelligence and usage of Linked Data for the building integration layers between datasets produced by human experts and existing machine learning algorithms.



Webinar: The PID Graph in practice - Jupyter Notebook demonstration - 27th August 2020

The PID graph can link PIDs together via relations in their metadata to enable the discovery of connections at least two “hops” away. In this online demonstration, we will present several use cases that FREYA has identified throughout the project. Taking these use cases as examples, we will show how Jupyter notebooks can be used to query the DataCite GraphQL service and gather information through the PID Graph.



FREYA Ambassadors Competition

The FREYA project wants the global research community to know about the benefits of persistent identifiers, and the way in which linking persistent identifiers (PIDs), or creating a PID Graph, can make researchers’ lives easier. In this competition we want to know how the FREYA ambassadors, will utilise or could benefit from the PID Graph.



Can you help sustain the PID Forum?

Currently, the PID Forum is managed and financed by the FREYA project. Since the project is ending in November of this year, a new host is needed.



New Blog: Introducing the PID Services Registry

Datacite is pleased to announce the launch of the new persistent identifier (PID) services registry available at https://pidservices.org, a new service to find services built upon different PIDs from core technology providers and those who integrate from across a variety of disciplinary areas.



New blog: Powering the PID Graph: announcing the DataCite GraphQL API

DataCite has just launched a new API that powers the PID Graph, the graph formed by scholarly resources described by persistent identifiers (PIDs) and the connections between them. The API is powered by GraphQL, a widely adopted Open Source technology that enables queries of this graph, addressing use cases of our community in ways that were not possible before.



The PID forum goes multilingual

Thanks to the support of the FREYA international ambassadors community, the PID Forum is being enriched with multilingual content



FREYA webinar on the NARCIS PID Graph

The FREYA-EU project and DANS-KNAW are organising a webinar on the work on the PID graph and NARCIS, the Dutch portal for scientific information, on April 9 at 15:30 CET.

The PID Graph within the RDA: FREYA/RDA UK Node Workshop

On Tuesday 16 July, FREYA and the RDA UK Node teamed up for a workshop on persistent identifiers. With almost 70 delegates, hosted at the Wellcome Trust, the event provided a great opportunity for a UK audience to engage with FREYA's work and the role of the project within the RDA and beyond. This event was the second workshop arranged by the UK node of the RDA which is co-ordinated by STFC and JISC.
