>From today (Wednesday 23 September 2015) , a digital identifier that
distinguishes researchers - an ORCID iD - will become mandatory for all new
NIHR personal award applications.

*Making the ORCID iD mandatory will introduce valuable distinguishable
information and increase the effectiveness and accuracy of the analysis of
outputs in order to demonstrate the impact of NIHR research.* In the longer
term, with the introduction of functionality to enable information to pass
between the NIHR’s own information systems and ORCID, the NIHR will be able
to reduce the administrative burden for researchers having to fill in the
same information in multiple locations for applications and reports.
