This 2-year project will implement a working infrastructure for the management of data and research information within Swiss universities and other research institutions. Starting from the working system FORSbase, developed and maintained by FORS in Lausanne, the project consortium, consisting of FORS (leading institution), the University of Zurich, and the University of Lausanne will put into place a modular, interoperable, and generalized research information and data system. This system will allow partners to track the projects and research data within their institutions, and will allow researchers to archive and share their own data, thus fulfilling the requirements of funders and journals.
Partners: University of Lausanne, University of Zurich, SWITCH
Duration: 2 years (2019-2020)
