The rising strategic importance of CRISs and IRs for higher education and research institutions is linked to the need of fostering research and innovation.
Within the framework of a Partnership Agreement signed in 2014, EUNIS, the European University Information Systems Organization (www.eunis.org), and euroCRIS, the International Organization for Research Information (www.eurocris.org) have launched a joint survey aiming to collect as much data as possible on the information systems currently in use in Europe to support the Research Area.
