5 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ CRIS “a Current Research Information System, commonly known as "CRIS", is any information tool dedicated to provide access to and disseminate research information” (www.eurocris.org)www.eurocris.org –A CRIS consists of a datamodel describing objects of interest to R&D a tool or set of tools to manage the data

6 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ Purpose CRIS To assist users in their recording, reporting and decision-making concerning the research process whether developing programmes, allocating funding, assessing projects, executing projects, generating results, assessing results or transferring technology

7 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ a tool for policy making evaluation of research based on outputs document the research activities document research output a formal log of research in progress to assist project planning. Purpose at institution level

8 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ Purpose for Individual end users to evaluate opportunities for research funding avoid duplication of research activity analyse research trends, locally, regionally and internationally references/links to full text locate new contacts/networks identify new markets for products of research

18 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ CERIF examples - What for ?

19 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ Model requirements Cover the business objects –Project, Person, Orgunit, Publication –FundingProgramme, Expertise, Equipment, –Results: publication, patents, product.. Store relations through time with defined roles Scalability via separation between Semantics and Syntax: –allow new objects, new roles in relations, new classifications, map classifications Support multilingualism

20 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ CERIF Essentials Syntax –R&D business objects –Time constraind linking relations Binary relations Recursive relations –Language independant Semantics –Classifications –Controlled vocabularies Type Roles in linking relations

21 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ CERIF A Template CRIS can be implemented using subset or superset of full CERIF model: –for projects –for people –for organisations –for publications, patents, products –for services –for facilities, particular equipment with role-based, temporally-bound relationships

22 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ CERIF The Advantages Neutral Architecture Data Model can be implemented: –relational –object-oriented –information retrieval (including WWW) Process model can be implemented –DBMS and query; centralised or distributed; –html web / harvesting / IR-query; –advanced knowledge-based technology But interoperation requires structured schema

23 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ CERIF The use today As a model for an implemented standalone CRIS –But interoperation ready As a model to define the wrapper around a legacy non-CERIF CRIS –To allow homogenous access to heterogeneous systems As a definition of a data exchange format –To create a common data warehouse from several CRIS

24 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ CERIF: The Key This allows not only construction of a new interoperation-ready CRIS but also wrapper- interoperation by generating CERIF from a legacy CRIS The key to the CERIF datamodel is Structured (syntax) First order logic (semantics) Legacy CRIS wrapper New CRIS

30 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ Linkages From CERIF Staying with this example: CERIF does not only provide strong, role- typed, timestamped within-links But also provides the facility for strong, role-typed, timestamped outward-links

31 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ Linkages From CERIF Staying with this example: publication X full-text (or multimedia) is not stored within the CERIF data model but in an institutional repository or publisher’s online database. CERIF provides the direct linkage to the full text.

45 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ CERIF The Key The key to the design is the separation of base entities from link entities. The base entities, once populated, are rarely amended but may be appended with new information. The link entities are where the main update activity takes place since they record new relationships between records in the base entities. These new relationships may be input or they may be generated by deduction or induction.

The need: –The EC has declared the ERA (European Research Area) The Lisbon Targets The Opportunity –CRISs to record IP of an organisation to encourage innovation, wealth creation, improved quality of life –Interoperating CRISs to support the ERA and Lisbon targets especially to encourage cross-Europe innovation Note projects CISTRANA and IST-World

83 ©euroCRIS/Keith G Jeffery, Geert Van Grootel CRIS: Stakeholders, Benefits, History, Process, Architecture 18/03/ Where are we now? And Where Next? Research Information is an essential asset for realising the Knowledge Society. This requires a cultural and organisational change. The technology base is largely present
