‘Synthesise, standardise and productionise CERIF for UK Higher Educational Institutions’
To develop a standard CERIF-XML schema and agreed vocabularies building on work done in earlier JISC projects such as Readiness4Ref, CRISPool, CERIFy, and IRIOS. Build standard, production-ready plug-ins to import and export data in this agreed format for CRIS, Repository and Research Council software and demonstrate the use of these plug-ins in live systems:
– exchanging data between partner institutions e.g. when an researcher moves to a new Institution
– uploading grant-level information to RCUK ROP
Produce roadmap with costs/benefits for adoption of this standard CERIF-XML approach for other HEIs and other use cases, in particular the development of an open source aggregator and portal for use by research pools and other consortia.
