GRID passes the torch to ROR

The Digital Science released the Global Research Identifier Database (GRID), an open database of unique research-related organisation identifiers for public use by the research community, in 2015. In 2019, the Research Organization Registry (ROR), was founded as a community-driven initiative, mirroring the GRID database. Digital Science has decided to pass on the torch to ROR and retire GRID from the public space, with a last public release in Q4 of 2021. This decision marks an important milestone in the evolution of both organization registries. Digital Science will continue to use GRID internally - but focused on the Digital Science products and their users and clients.
