The CERIF as a tool to enable system interoperability

Presented by

Jan Dvořák, euroCRIS, Netherlands

About this talk

CERIF is the European standard for research information management maintained by the euroCRIS non-profit association in the Netherlands. CERIF exists to ensure that research information may be shared, exchanged and mined across Current Research Information Systems or CRISs of various kinds including institutional, subject-specific, regional, national and funder ones. The way this is achieved is via the definition of a harmonised relational entity data model that covers the main conceptual elements associated to research. People (researchers), organisations (institutions) and research projects are the core entities of the CERIF data model, to which a number of secondary ones are connected such as research publications, research instruments and facilities or research data and patents. The presentation will describe the CERIF data model and show several of its applications to improve system interoperability, including the integration with the European OpenAIRE Open Science infrastructure.
