euroCRIS Best Practice Task Group
I’ve just accepted an invitation to joint the euroCRIS Task Group on Best Practice, which is chaired by Barbara Ebert (Leuphana Universität Lüneburg) and Sergey Parinov (CEMI RAS, Moscow). The invitation was based on the work that I’ve been doing for the UK CERIF landscape study which I presented at the last euroCRIS membership meeting in Lille in November 2011. In addition to documenting best practice, the Group plans to produce a Directory of Research Information Systems which will provide an overview of CRIS implementations across Europe. This therefore fits well with the RIM synthesis work I’ve been doing for the JISC RIM programme.
The Group will be meeting in Bath (see details of agenda, papers, maps, etc.) on 10 February 2012, alongside the other euroCRIS Task Groups, and preceded by the CERIF Tutorial and UK Data Surgery on 9 February.
