- euroCRIS is a not-for-profit association and aims to be the internationally recognised point of reference for all matters relating to Current Research Information Systems (CRIS).
- euroCRIS is dedicated to improvement of research information availability. The association is custodian of the Common European Research Information Format (CERIF), an international standard for interoperation of CRIS, which is an EU recommendation to the member states. euroCRIS stimulates the implementation of CERIF-compliant CRIS. Ultimate aim is to implement all relevant CRIS (related) systems progressively on a GRIDs platform in order to gain maximum advantage for European research at all levels. In the realisation of this mission euroCRIS capitalises on international developments in science and science policy, particularly with reference to the European Research Area (ERA) and the evolving needs of stakeholders.
CERIF - About
- CERIF (Common European Research Information Format) was developed with the support of the EC (European Commission) in two major phases: 1987-1990 and 1997-1999.
- It is a standard; technically it is an EU (European Union) Recommendation to member states.
- The information is used by
- researchers (to find partners, to track competitors, to form collaborations);
- research managers (to assess performance and research outputs and to find reviewers for research proposals);
- research strategists (to decide on priorities and resourcing compared with other countries);
- publication editors (to find reviewers and potential authors);
- intermediaries / brokers (to find research products and ideas that can be carried forward with knowledge/ technology transfer to wealth creation);
- the media (to communicate the results of R&D in a socio-economic context) and the general public (for interest).
- Essential features are:
- it has the concept of objects or entities with attributes such as project, person, organisational unit;
- it supports n:m relationships between them (and recursively on any of them) using 'linking relations' thus providing rich semantics including roles and time;
- it is fully internationalised in language and character set;
- it is extensible without prejudicing the core datamodel thus providing guaranteed interoperability at least at the core level but not precluding even richer intercommunication. It is designed for use both for data exchange (data file transfer) and for heterogeneous distributed query / result environments.
- Last release: CERIF 2008 1.1.
