A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed this week between euroCRIS and VIVO to establish and promote a strategic and cooperative partnership between both organisations.
The session recording and slides for the monthly webinar on the CERIF Refactoring Pilot Project held on July 6th are already available at the event webpage on our website.
DRIS: Directory of Research Information Systems
- Facilitate the interoperability of CRIS systems and their integration with other information systems.
Two important landmarks for CERIF
1. The CERIF API (version 1.0 - August 2015)
This release makes a few additions based on current experience with CERIF usage. On the other hand, the use of some attributes in the model is deprecated - these attributes will go away in a future release. The more appropriate way of expressing the information now is using a classification or federated identifiers.
See below for a detailed list of changes.
CERIF (the Common European Research Information Format) is:
- A concept about research entities and their relationships – Specification (Conceptual Level)
- A description of research entities and their relationships – Model (Logical Level)
- A formalization of research entities and their relationships – Database Scripts (Physical Level)

Update on forthcoming euroCRIS events
In order to responsibly address the minimisation of the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Spring 2021 euroCRIS Membership Meeting, originally planned to be held as a hybrid event on April 26-28, 2021 at the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) has now officially been cancelled and will be replaced by a new series of euroCRIS webinars whose dates and programme will be announced soon.
We are looking forward to being able to stage an on-site event for the Autumn 2021 Strategic Membership Meeting, typically held towards the end of November every year (the SMM 2019 in Münster was the last in-person event we were able to hold before Covid-19 struck). The dates and venue for this Autumn 2021 SMM will be announced as soon as we can, also keeping in mind the evolution in the circumstances.
Having been forced to cancel the CRIS2020 conference, we would also like to announce that the CRIS2022 conference will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Our host for this event will be the University of Zagreb University Computing Centre (SRCE).
More information will soon follow on the dates and the programme for the Spring 2021 series of euroCRIS webinars.
