Theme/Topic of the meeting

Each Members Meeting has its own theme/topic. Speakers for the topical sessions may be approached by both AMUE and euroCRIS.

We propose the following theme: CRIS in the research information landscape

This is still a working title.


What we would like to have are presentations discussing the role of CRIS-systems in research evaluation, its relationship with Linked Open Data, its relationships with datasets- and publications repositories.
