UK Research Information Shared Service (UKRISS) Project
UKRISS is conducting a feasibility and scoping study for the reporting of research information at a national level based on CERIF, with the objective of increasing efficiency, productivity and quality across the sector. Our aim is to define and prototype solutions which will be compelling, easy to use, have a low entry barrier, and support innovative information sharing and benchmarking.

The project
UKRISS is a 16 month project, funded by JISC, beginning on 1st March 2012. The partners are King’s College London (lead), British Library, Brunel University, Cottage Labs, euroCRIS, University of Exeter and University of Edinburgh (unfunded).
