The PID Forum was created by the FREYA project as one of its activities funded by the European Commission’ Horizon 2020 programme (Grant Agreement number 777523).
The FREYA project is now coming to an end, but the FREYA team invited applications to continue operating and developing the PID Forum after the end of the project. Six applications were received, and an evaluation committee led by FREYA and consisting of current PID Forum moderators (excluding any affiliated with applicant organisations) conducted a systematic evaluation using criteria such as capability for technical hosting of the PID Forum, commitment to promotion and sustainability, and ideas for further development.
We are very pleased to announce that NISO, the National Information Standards Organization, has been selected to take over the PID Forum and continue it as a global resource. NISO is very engaged with the worldwide PID community and already helps with moderation for the PID Forum.
The FREYA team is very pleased that this valuable resource for the community will continue into the future.
