Research information in higher education

The field of research information in higher education has seen significant developments recently. Where are we now? What has been achieved? And what route are we charting for the coming years?

Vergaderzaal SURF Utrecht

10:00 - 15:00
SURF Utrecht

One of the developments when it comes to research information in higher education is the advent of Publinova. The DCC-PO has also been working on a modular Research Information Systems (RIS) design for practice-based research.

What questions will be addressed this day?

  • What is the minimum data that universities of applied sciences have to supply to connect to the Publinova platform, and how do we do this in a sustainable way?
  • What is a "research project value chain" and what do you use it for?
  • What is an RIS (Research Information Systems) system and which sources/systems are we going to connect?
  • What metadata standards do we want to use and what to do with 'persistent identifiers'?
  • Follow-up steps for the research information project.
