The Spanish-language report "CRIS Systems and their Potential for Showcasing a Diverse Range of Research Outputs and for Promoting New Research Assessment Methods" ("Los sistemas CRIS, su potencial para visibilizar diversas formas de producción e impulsar nuevas modalidades de evaluación") has been recently published by Fernanda Beigel (CONICET/Universidad Nacional de Cuyo) on behalf of the Latin American Forum for Research Assessment (FOLEC). The report was presented at the July 1st FOLEC International Workshop on CRIS models in Europe and Latin America fostered by the Latin American Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO). Among others, this event featured guest talks from euroCRIS President Sadia Vancauwenbergh and from former euroCRIS Board member Gunnar Sivertsen.
The presentations delivered at the June 24th euroCRIS Track held within the 2021 VIVO annual conference are already available in the euroCRIS repository. These include the slides for the two case studies for institutional VIVO implementations at Latin American universities, ORBIS at Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí (UASLP, Mexico) and the HUB-UR Research Hub at Universidad del Rosario (UR, Colombia).
The presentation and session recording for the monthly webinar on Caplab held on Jun 22nd are already available at the event webpage. The webinar was delivered by Carine Bougnague, institutional relations officer, Pascal Pérotin, Caplab Head and Bertrand Mocquet, digital expert at AMUE. The session was chaired by Joachim Schöpfel, Université de Lille and euroCRIS Board member.
A new monthly euroCRIS webinar on Tue Jul 6th will address the ongoing CERIF Refactoring pilot project led by Jan Dvořák and Dragan Ivanović from the euroCRIS CERIF Task Group. The project started at the beginning of this year with the aim to upgrade the modeling paradigm of CERIF, the Common European Research Information Format, which lies at the core of many Current Research Information Systems. The current monolithic model will be divided into modules for easier adaptation and a more agile development process.
Once the feedback from the reviewers has been received, the euroCRIS Track at the 2021 VIVO conference “VIVO implementations at Latin American institutions: different approaches and configurations, one common objective” is now officially accepted.
The event programme for the 1st UdeC Open Access Week, to be held from June 14th to 18th 2021, includes a presentation on 'Open Science and CRIS Systems' to be delivered on Fri June 18th by the euroCRIS secretary.
The presentation will be in Spanish language and will add to the contributions by research funders like the Chilean ANID and institutions like the Technical University of Delft and Universidad de Chile.
A new monthly euroCRIS webinar on Tue Jun 22nd will be devoted to the Caplab software developed by the French AMUE (Agence de mutualisation des universités et établissements d'enseignement supérieur ou de recherche – shared-services agency for universities and other higher education and research Institutions). Caplab is an application for research labs where the activities, projects and research outputs of Units of Research can be stored.
Last week (May 17-21, 2021) saw the celebration of another successful series of euroCRIS webinars aimed to replace membership meetings we're still unable to hold as on-site events as of yet. The session recordings and slides for the five presentations held within the Spring 2021 series of euroCRIS webinars are already available from the event programme webpage.
