As part of the digital transformation, the RIS Synergy project connects research information systems from Austrian universities, systems from funding agencies and public administration. RIS SYNERGY aims to improve data quality while at the same time conserving resources. This will be achieved via interfaces and common standards. The project also deals with the outline of a national research portal in the form of a joint concept study. The project’s synergies are intended to help strengthen Austria as a research location.
