What is a CRIS?
“a Current Research Information System,
commonly known as "CRIS", is any
information tool dedicated to provide
access to and disseminate research
information” (www.eurocris.org)
A CRIS consists of
• a datamodel describing objects of interest to
R&D
• a tool or set of tools to manage the data

… what happened next - post
RAE
• CRIS rising up agenda
• More functionality; better interoperability - inhouse or
3rd party?
• Requirements similar across sector
• .. So why go alone? Why reinvent the wheel across
the sector?
• Joint project to tender and implement with Aberdeen

IR is not disappearing
• It is being put into context
• Expertise and advocacy still required
• … but an IR linked to a CRIS is greater
than the sum of the two parts
• … and will make your life easier
