A non-profit organisation established to support the development of quality RDI information systems (Current Research Information System, CRIS).
Its most important product is the Common European Research Information Format (CERIF), developed with the support of the European Union and used as a quasi-standard data model.
Its use is officially recommended for EU Member States.
CERIF is a model for the formal description of RDI information (data on persons, projects, organisations, publications, patents, products, funding etc., and the connections between such data), which enables the development and cooperation of information technology systems in the field of RDI.
