Current Research Information System (CRIS) Renewal

For more than 15 years the TU Dresden is running a current research information system (CRIS) which had been developed stepwise from a printed edition accompanied by an offline database to a browser-based online version with distributed editing roles that can be queried individually. It supports research marketing of TU scientists and the transfer of their research results, especially into industry. In the meantime, the market for current research information systems developed and became more professional and dynamic so that the in-house system will be replaced by a new customized CRIS solution. 

The new current research information system aims at a significant increase of range and visibility of TU Dresden research output and will support scientific administration as well as researchers by providing multifaceted and more valid key figures. In the future, it will enable all scientists of the university to present their individual research achievements as publications, third party funding, or special awards, for example. In addition, it will take on an essential role for reporting purposes in research and transfer, in documentation and communication.

The venture project "Current Research Information System Renewal" has been started in October 2014 and is based at Sächsische Landesbibliothek - Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Dresden (SLUB Dresden).

Our tender procedure resulted in the acquisition of PURE - one of the world leading CRIS. Since the end of 2016 we have been working on our own local Pure configuration because these systems need adaptation to local conditions. In doing so we pay special attention to requirements and requests we have been approached by you.

Contact persons
Each faculty appointed a contact person for their specific subject area you may address to.
