This session consists of three presentations.

Featured Speakers

Hanna-Mari Puuska, CSC:
Research Information Management Systems: covering the whole research lifecycle #41
Current Research Information Systems (CRISs) traditionally serve as tools to showcase research activity and as internal databases to enable evidence-based decision-making processes. This presentation provides a snapshot of the current CRIS landscape and summarises the various ways CRISs are currently used as well as emerging uses and scenarios. Special attention is paid to national and regional CRIS platforms, which are increasingly seen as valuable for the analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of research in specific geographies.

Michael Greil, University of Vienna:

RIS Synergy – Creating a Common Language Across Institutions: Lessons Learned and Challenges #15
We analyse how a common language and a profound communication strategy enable the development of shared services in a digitisation project. We discuss how RIS Synergy utilises international standards, such as persistent identifiers, to synergise CRIS systems across the Austrian research landscape. The project consortium consists of 17 diverse project partners with different requirements, processes, and vocabularies. Therefore, we share lessons learned and challenges, along with best practices for establishing a task force on public relations and communications for community-building and to raise awareness of the project and ensure its long-term nature.

Aldona Tomczyńska, National Information Processing Institute:
Beyond CRIS: A research and higher education information system in Poland #48
We present a recently implemented Polish information technology system that provides official data on science and higher education. The RAD-on is an upgraded analytical platform of the CRIS and HEMIS systems that exist in other countries. We outline RAD-on’s applications in decision-making processes at research, governmental, and nongovernmental institutions. We also describe trends in the use of data in decision-making processes, reviews the CRIS and HEMIS nationwide systems in use across the world, and compares them to RAD-on to discuss the latter’s unique features.
