Dear All,

As has been the case since a few years now, also this Autumn, euroCRIS will
organize its “Strategic Membership Meeting”: the yearly opportunity for
discussion and exchange of ideas between the Strategic Partners of euroCRIS
and the euroCRIS Community, around an actual and mutually interesting theme:
Towards optimal Research information Infrastructures on a national and
international level.
What uses for which stakeholders? Through which collaboration(s), by which
building blocks?

With special attention for: The road to a European Research Information

We may be farther along this road than we realize (if we jointly grasp the
present opportunities). What can be learned from ongoing initiatives and
collaborations within and outside of Europe?

This year the meeting will take place in Athens, Greece, from 8-10 of
November forthcoming and will be organized in cooperation with the Greek
National Documentation Centre (EKT).

We at euroCRIS are both happy and proud to be able to present you an - in
my view - exciting and challenging programme, with a mixture of lectures
and interactive sessions with the audience and some first class speakers
from key stakeholders in the research information domain. More concretely:

   - Prof. Geoffrey Boulton, President of CODATA, the  Committee on Data
   for Science and Technology of the International Council for Science. See:
   - Prof. John Donovan, President of EARMA: the European Organisation for
   Research Managers. See: http://www.earma.org/
   - Dr Emily Gale, UK Medical Research Council, representing SCIENCE
   EUROPE, the association of European Research Funding Organisations (RFO)
   and Research Performing Organisations (RPO),  See:
   - Dr Natalia Manola: Project Manager of the OpenAIRE Project. See:

Apart from these expert speakers, there will be, as indicated, various
interactive sessions with the audience as well as contributions on national
developments going on in Greece in the field of research information in
general and CRIS in particular.

Last but not least, there will be the presentation of the work towards a
"new CERIF-XML", aimed at promoting the acceptance and application of
CERIF, with already a first concrete use case project that has been started
up to implement the revised CERIF-XML.
You will find also all the information needed regarding the meeting at the
euroCRIS web site:
