IGSN are globally unique and persistent identifiers for material samples. IGSNs resolve to persistent landing pages, which are managed by the federated IGSN Agents. The IGSN e.V. is the implementation organization of the IGSN.  It is an international, non-profit organization which operates a central registration system for IGSNs. 

IGSN 2040 is a project funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.  The goal of the project is to develop a strategic plan and roadmap that will guide the IGSN system in its next chapter so it will be able to fulfill its mission of providing persistent, sustainable, and reliable PID services to the international science community.

This page contains outputs from the members of the IGSN community and the IGSN 2040 project.
