There is an increasing awareness of the need for quality research management (information) systems:
- for researchers: easy access to relevant information and associated software, processor power, storage systems and - where necessary - detectors to collect more data to overcome incomplete or inconsistent information
- for research managers and administrators: easy measurement and analysis of research activity and easy access to comparative information
- for research councils: optimisation of the funding process
- for entrepreneurs and technology transfer organizations: easy retrieval of novel ideas and technology in a knowledge-assisted environment and easy identification of competitors and previously done similar research
- for the media and public: easy access to information, software and computer power to allow easily-assimilated presentation of research results in appropriate contexts.
Commercial CRIS solutions including handling of contracts, projects, publications, study plans and patents are available.
