Identify and track your research projects and activities with RAiD

RAiD provides persistent, unique and resolvable identifiers for research projects based on the global handle system. RAiD also collects descriptive information about the project activities and records these in a "metadata envelope".


The metadata envelope records time/date stamped persistent identifiers for:

  • Funders and grants

  • Organisations and institutions

  • Collaborators and contributors

  • Articles and data

  • Tools and services
