Overview of European CRIS systems

Mon, 12/10/2015 - 11:46 -- euroCRIS Secret...
In Slovakia an update of an earlier survey (in 2011) has been conducted in 2013 in order to analyse running CRIS systems in Europe on a national level. The focus was on countrywide systems that are used by both the national scientific community and the national science policy. Effectiveness of the systems is based on characteristics of their online presentations and on the intelligibility and attractiveness of the user interface. In the analyses the DRIS (the Directory of Research Information Systems, maintained by euroCRIS) has been used.
