A 3-day training course on research information management and CRIS systems was held on Feb 24-26 for the Consortium of Galician Universities (CISUG, formerly BUGalicia). The consortium brings together the three Universities – A Coruña, Santiago de Compostela and Vigo – in Galicia, North West Spain.
The 10-hr online course had over 40 attendees from IT services, research offices, project management offices and libraries at the three universities. The event programme included sessions on the general and Spanish CRIS landscape, CERIF, the role of CRIS systems in Open Science implementation, the CRIS Manager role, CRIS interoperability with repositories and beyond and first steps to set an institutional CRIS among others. Guest presentations were made on the Hércules national CRIS project in Spain and the Catalan Research Portal (PRC) as an example of cooperative CRIS infrastructure across universities and research institutes.
