euroCRIS has entered into a strategic partnership with several organisations that are active or have a clear interest in CRISs, for research information, IST aspects, funding, management, coordination and evaluation (assessment) purposes. They are involved in the annual euroCRIS seminar series and in the Conferences.
In the seminars also the European Commission is represented. There are also close contacts to the OAI community (www.openarchives.org). Open Access has been a major topic during the euroCRIS Seminars and Conferences of the last years. On the 6th of November 2012 a Memorandum of Understanding was signed regarding a cooperative relationship between euroCRIS and the World Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR).
