What is euroCRIS?

euroCRIS, founded in 2002, is an international not-for-profit association, that brings together experts on research information in general and research information systems (CRIS) in particular.

The mission of euroCRIS is to promote cooperation within and share knowledge among the research information community and interoperability of research information through CERIF, the Common European Research Information Format. Areas of interest also cover research databases, CRIS related data like scientific datasets, (open access) institutional repositories, as well as data access and exchange mechanisms, standards and guidelines and best practice for CRIS.

euroCRIS is steered by a Board, consisting of a President, a Secretary, Executives for Communication, Events, External Relations, Projects as well as the lead for the CERIF and CRIS Architectures Task Group. euroCRIS provides the framework for information exchange across a broad variety of stakeholders: researchers, research managers and administrators, research councils, research funders, entrepreneurs and technology transfer organisations. euroCRIS also addresses the media and the public.

An important instrument for the exchange of information are International euroCRIS Conferences (held every other year) and euroCRIS Strategic Membership Meetings (held twice a year).

euroCRIS 2020 annual accounts In line with the requirements on euroCRIS Statutes, the organisation commits to openly sharing its annual accounts with its members. This would typically be done during the Spring membership meeting every year. In 2021 however, on-site membership meetings are not being held so the 2020 annual accounts are being shared online here and will instead be presented to our members at the Spring 2021 series of euroCRIS webinars.
