Some current and upcoming activity/involvement
CERIF and euroCRIS
The Common European Research Information Format (CERIF) is a EU Recommendation to Member States, and growing in importance in the Research Information Management space in the UK, but also internationally. In 2002, the EC handed over the responsibility of CERIF to euroCRIS, a non-profit organisation dedicated to the development of Research Information Systems and their interoperability.
