UEberResearch, a leading provider of software solutions for research funders,
announced today the launch of their free funding wizard for ORCID, under the name
UEberWizard. The wizard allows ORCID users to import and associate their funding data with
their ORCID record, through a simple search–click–submit process. The UEberWizard

“We want to make adding funding information into ORCID as easy as possible,” said
Christian Herzog, CEO of UEberResearch. “ORCID users will now have an easy-to-use
interface that integrates and standardizes data from more than 60 of the largest US and
European funders, and we are adding new funders each month.” Beyond the current system,
UEberResearch is offering to help other grant funders include their data in the
UEberWizard. “We believe this will be easier for funders, easier for users, and beneficial
for both. Researchers can add all their grants in one step – saving time, making adoption
easier and more likely,” Herzog added.

“ORCID’s mission is to facilitate and automate connections between researchers and
their professional contributions. From works, to other identifiers, affiliations, and now
funding data, we continue to work with the community to realize that vision,” says Laurel
Haak, PhD, Executive Director of ORCID. “We are excited to be collaborating with the team
at UEberResearch to provide researchers with tools to link their ORCID record with their
funding data reliably and with minimal effort.”

The UEberWizard is available now in the ORCID Registry and can be accessed by any user
at http://orcid.org/register.


ORCID (http://orcid.org) is an open, non-profit independent organisation that
provides a registry of unique and persistent researcher identifiers. ORCID is unique in
its ability to link researchers and scholars with their works across disciplines, research
sectors, and nations and its cooperation with other identifier systems. ORCID works with
the community to ensure that identifiers are embedded in research workflows and systems,
so that the identifier becomes a part of a document, dataset, grant, or other research
activity. In addition, ORCID provides tools for researchers and scholars to link their
identifier to their existing works. The organization announced the expansion of its
interface to include funding information this month. For more information subscribe to our
