NIH, AHRQ and the CDC have released a notice stating that all individuals supported by research training, fellowship, research education and career development awards will be required to have ORCID iDs. It also states that those ORCID iDs must be linked to the individual’s eRA Commons personal profile. This linking is required at the time of appointment for institutional awards (T, K12/KL2 and R mechanisms) and January 25, 2020 for those applying for individual awards (F and K mechanisms).
