What is CERIF ?
Common European Research Information Format
–
Conceptual Level (Specification)
A concept about research entities
and their relationships
–
Logical Level (Conceptual Model)
A formal abstract description of the
research entities and their relationships
according to the concept
–
Physical Level (Database Scripts)
A formal machine readable description
of the entities and their relationships
according to the concept
–
SQL Script
----------------------CREATE Table Person
CREATE Table Project
CREATE Table OrgUnit
Semantic Layer (current Formal Semantics)
A formalized controlled vocabulary describing a
general contextual semantics of the research domain

CERIF 2008 – 1.2 Upgrades
•
Pending Entities have been discussed with the following results:
No cfCall and no cfGrant entity and related entities will be added.
Instead, the Funding entity will be renamed and via the cfClass plus
cfClassScheme entities, a typification for FundingProgramme, Call,
Tender, etc. can be realized.
•
Deletion of Entities in the Context of Funding:
cfCall (so far pending, now removed)
cfCall_FundingProgramme (so far pending, now removed)
cfCallDescription (so far pending, now removed)
cfCallKeywords (so far pending, now removed)
cfCallName (so far pending, now removed)
cfGrant (so far pending, now removed)
cfGrant_FundingProgramme (so far pending, now removed)
cfGrantDescription (so far pending, now removed)
cfGrantKeywords (so far pending, now removed)
cfGrantName (so far pending, now removed)
