Research funders are crying out for better ways to share information about the grants they award, and for more reliable connections between grants and outputs that result from those grants. Researchers need easier ways to acknowledge funding and other support for their work. Content platforms and publishers want to enrich their metadata, and aid new ways to discover and convey relationships between research outputs, people, organizations and funding. Analytics and reporting platforms need authoritative data to build graphs and other tools.

A global group of funders has been working with Crossref since 2017 to develop a robust, open, reliable registry of grant IDs and metadata. In this discussion session alongside our partners, we will give an overview of the why and how of the development of this new infrastructural component. The talk will cover the project's initial demand, the process of community consultation, and the early adopter program Crossref is currently running to link funding to outputs in partnership with the Wellcome Trust and Europe PMC. This is a new community service led by funders and provided by Crossref, which will provide systems across the scholarly network with a richer picture of research support.
