Mission & Members

  • CILEA is an inter-university not-for-profit consortium, based in Italy and founded in 1974 to:

    • promote innovation

    • coordinate initiatives

    • develop services

      in information and communication technologies (ICT)

  • 12 members (Italian Ministry of HE and Research and 11 universities)


Main dimensions
Main dimensions

  • Over 27M € annual revenue (red: financial contribution from the Ministry, green: revenues from activities)

  • Over 120 employees (high degree of specialization)

  • Headquarters in Milan (Segrate) and offices in Rome.

Cilea s role in cris
CILEA’s role in CRIS

  • Some years ago CILEA started to partner with Italian universities and research centres that needed a CRIS to control and enhance their performance:

  • 2003  repositories (DSpace)

  • 2004  research activities management

  • 2006  business intelligence

  • 2008  complete platform for Current Research Information Systems: SURplus was born

Why interoperability
Why interoperability?

  • Interoperability among components and external systems goes beyond system integration

  • It preserves independence in choosing how to build one’s own CRIS infrastructure

  • It preserves previous investments in technologies and organizational efforts


Conclusions
Conclusions

  • There is a need to share your data among systems and reuse them

  • There is a need to disseminate your research output

  • Open standards and protocols enhance your chances for interoperability, so: go beyond integration, go open!
