euroCRIS Track at the 2020 VIVO annual conference: "VIVO in the euroCRIS Directory of Research Information Systems (DRIS): a growing presence, multiple use cases"
- Keywords: VIVO, research information management, current research information systems, system interoperability, case studies
- TL;DR: VIVO as a standalone institutional research information system vs top-of-a-monolithic-CRIS solution: case studies
- Abstract: Taking the under-construction euroCRIS DRIS as a starting point, the session will feature an introductory presentation by a euroCRIS representative exploring the geographic distribution and the various configurations for the VIVO implementations listed in the directory. A number of case study presentations will follow featuring the two main settings for VIVO systems in Europe: as standalone Current Research Information Systems (CRIS) and as research portals on top of an underlying 'monolithic' CRIS. A round table with the presenters will close the session in which various VIVO configuration issues will be discussed. The planned structure for the session is as follows: • "VIVO in the euroCRIS Directory of Research Information Systems (DRIS)" (Pablo de Castro, euroCRIS Secretary) VIVO case studies in the euroCRIS DRIS: an overview • "VIVO as a standalone CRIS" (Sonja Schulze, Universität Osnabrück) • "VIVO as a front-end for an underlying 'monolithic' CRIS (I): the case of University of Milan" (Unimi presenter TBC) • "VIVO as a front-end for an underlying 'monolithic' CRIS (II): the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) approach by SIGMA Research (Anna Guillaumet, SIGMA AIE) • Round table on the various ways to use VIVO to showcase the institutional research information
