A guest talk on CRIS systems, research support and Open Science was delivered on Tue Jan 18th within the post-grad course on 'Research Support Services: Research Information, Data, Evaluation and Publishing' organised by University Pablo de Olavide (UPO) in Seville, Spain. The presentation explored a number of relevant institutional Open Science workflows where research information management systems play a key role and will provide a snapshot of the CRIS landscape in Spain based on the euroCRIS Directory of Research Information Systems (DRIS).
A plenary talk on the topic of "Research Information Management and Open Science" was remotely delivered by the euroCRIS Technical Secretary at the 4th LIS Academy Conference held Jan 6-8, 2022 at the Visvesvaraya Technological University (Belagavi, Karnataka State, India).
