EUNIS at euroCRIS Strategic Membership Meeting

Prof. Tomasz Szmuc, the Vice-President of EUNIS, has represented the organisation at the euroCRIS Strategic Membership Meeting entitled Research Information Management: from an Institutional to a National Level Implementation, held on 26-28 November in Warsaw.

The recent OCLC/euroCRIS RIM survey has shown how institutional implementations of research information management strategies tend to be much more dynamic and widespread than national or regional level ones. This is however not a case of either/or: national-level RIM infrastructure does frequently coexist and interoperate with institutional-level one. Using the Polish case study as a starting point, where a national CRIS is currently being built that will need to interoperate with a pre-existing range of institutional systems, this event will look into various approaches to the national vs institutional configuration in Europe and beyond.
