CERIF in Action … in Action!

ImageThe CERIF in Action project held its first physical project meeting (after the kick-off) at the University of St Andrews on 19th April 2012, including virtual attendance by some of the partners.

Discussions included progress updates from the HEI and software partners, and a useful brainstorming session put the wheels in motion for the roadmap for adoption.


International Conference on Current Research Information Systems (CRIS2012)


The CRIS 2012 conference will discuss recent trends in the development of Current Research Information Systems (CRIS) in the context of virtual research environments and the construction of powerful infrastructures for e-Science.

The conference, which will be held on 6th-9th June 2012, is the eleventh event in a series of biennial conferences dedicated to improve the availability of research information across Europe. The target audience includes managers of research performing or funding institutions, evaluators, librarians, ICT experts, as well as policy makers. It will discuss how linking information systems can help to tackle fragmentation on the national and subject level and contribute to the advancement of research and innovation in Europe and beyond.

We are pleased to announce that our submission for a CERIF in Action paper has been accepted as full papers with several members of the project team co-authoring the paper. At least two members of the project team will also be attending the conference.
