Add PI field to the funding descriptions
It is important to know who the principal investigator of a grant is, even if other contributors to that grant include it in their ORCID iD.
Thanks for this suggestion. We’re looking at adding contributor fields for both works and funding items in the ORCID record soon. We’re working with CReDit to use their taxonomy for roles and will be reviewing what contributor roles should be added from their list shortly.

In my field the usual categories for roles in awards are: lead-applicant, co-applicant and collaborator. By far the most common is co-applicant for which there is no appropriate category at the moment
