We are delighted to announce to our Community that on the 19th of January 2016, euroCRIS and the Instituto Brasileiro de Informação em Ciência e Tecnologia (IBICT) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the first one in the history of our Organisation with a non-European Partner. This partnership strengthens our opinion that the Research Ecosystem has no geographic or national borders and that to reach the perfect technical interoperability among different systems, we need cross-country cooperation on other levels to identify common solutions for common problems.
All the presentations and posters delivered at the Strategic Membership Meeting in Barcelona in November 2015 are now available in the euroCRIS DSpace-CRIS repository. 34 items have been made available, including the event programme. Abstracts of the presentations have been included if provided to euroCRIS by the authors. Those authors who wish to send an abstract of their presentations are invited to send these to firstname.lastname@example.org. The euroCRIS secretariat will include them into the respository after having received them.
