Representative for a project is that it is time limited and defined research activity, unlike an organizational unit. Sometime the project is related to a specific funding, for instance can the project members both be external and internal persons (as part from research groups that is an organizational unit and could only have internal members).

Add a project

A short instruction film made at the Faculty of Medicine:

In LUCRIS there is the following head classification of the project:

  • Research
  • Consultancy
  • Dissertation
  • Network
  • Other

Registration of a project

All users in LUCRIS can create a project. It should be the project leader or the person who the project leader appoints as the creator of the project. When you add an employee within LU to a project this person is notified that the project has been created. The message is not sent out to external members that is added to a project.

NB! External persons that are added to a project must give their consent to this.

The projects are directly visible in the research portal.

Find “your” project and add new

When you log in to LUCRIS you will see to your overview page, where you can see all project that you are part of.  If you miss a project you will add this through the module “Projects” in the left menu inside LUCRIS.

You will also find your active projects through clicking on the “Projects”- module name in the left menu, if you hold the mouse over the module you will see that a small plus “+” shows up – click on that if you would like to add a new project.

Cleaning of old LUP projects

Now in the first phase of LUCRIS it could happen that you see a project on your profile in LUCRIS that is not visible in the portal, this becouse we exported Projects and Research Groups from LUP to LUCRIS. Unfortunately the metadata quality on these records are so poor that they stay unpublic until you as a researcher enrich it and make it public. Please let us know if you would like help to removing a project. Projects that have not been enriched or made visible will be removed.    

Information you can add into a project:

  • Nature of activity type: Please choose between the following (one or more can be chosen)

- Interdisciplinary research

- International collaboration

- National collaboration

- Collaboration with industry

NB! External participants that are added on a project must give their consent to this.
