CRIS2022: Linking research information across data spaces

Conference

15th International Conference on Current Research Information Systems

CRIS 2022 is organised by euroCRIS in cooperation with the Ministry of Science and Education of the Republic of Croatia (MSE) and with the help of University Computing Centre, University of Zagreb (SRCE).

CRIS 2022 is the fifteen edition in a biennial series of conferences devoted to improving the availability of and access to research information systems across Europe. The target audience includes managers of research-performing and/or funding institutions, evaluators, librarians, ICT experts, as well as policy makers. euroCRIS is a non-profit professional association of CRIS experts and custodian of the Common European Research Information Format (CERIF).

The conference is partially financed from the EU funded Scientific and Technological Foresight project in Croatia, led by the Ministry of Science and Education, partnered by University Computing Centre (SRCE). One of the goals of the project is implementation of the national research information system – CroRIS.

Call for proposals

The CRIS 2022 conference will address recent trends in the significance, position and use of Current Research Information Systems (CRIS) and more specifically the opportunities they offer for research information exchange and aggregation across institutions, regions, countries and/or stakeholders (eg between institutions and research funders). For this purpose, the conference will gather researchers, managers of research-performing or funding organisations, evaluators, librarians, research administrators, ICT experts and policy makers.

The general theme of the conference is “Linking research information across data spaces”, emphasising the need for using the ever more widespread CRIS implementation to ensure smooth and effective mechanisms for research information exchange and aggregation. From Open Science implementation to business intelligence through research assessment, such interoperability mechanisms offer opportunities to improve the research information management processes in many different domains.

Current Research Information Systems (CRIS) play a pivotal role in this respect as they hold a vast set of interlinked pieces of information (metadata) about virtually all aspects and objects of research. However, not all systems hold the same information profiles, so any best practice examples for harmonisation efforts in this regard should be much welcome.

Following the cancellation of our CRIS2020 conference last year, we invite the interested audience in this 15th International Conference on Current Research Information Systems to bring forward and discuss ideas, solutions and experiences related to both the central theme and more generally to the present role and position of CRIS, and to report on relevant developments going on at a local, national or international level.
