This release makes a few additions based on current experience with CERIF usage.

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

After a successful and well-attended Nov 21-23 Autumn 2023 Strategic Membership Meeting at the Public University of Navarra (UPNA) in Pamplona (Spain), we are already preparing the next euroCRIS event. This will be the CRIS2024 Conference, to be held May 15-17, 2024 at the Technical University in Vienna (TU Wien). The event website is currently being put together and the Call for Proposals for the CRIS2024 Conference will stay open until the 15th of February 2024.

We are also busy with the early arrangements for the Autumn 2024 Stratregic Membership Meeting that will be held Nov 26-28, 2024 in Paris, France. The SMM2024 – whose venue will soon be announced – will mean euroCRIS's return to Paris almost ten years after the Spring 2015 Membership Meeting was hosted by AMUE.
