LUCRIS - research information system
The purpose of LUCRIS is primarily to enable the registration of research information to compile the collective research of individual researchers, research teams and Lund University as a whole.
LUCRIS is Lund university's research information system. The Research Portal is the external interface of LUCRIS, with the purpose to give external visitors a picture of what research is conduced here at LU.
On the following pages, you will find information about LUCRIS and the Research Portal, which is the public interface for the information entered in LUCRIS but also guides, frequently asked questions and answers, and links to the LUCRIS support.
What do you need today?
The information in the database is structured in such a way as to enable searches and compilations showing various aspects of research activities. The system enables automatic retrieval of data for display on other websites.
Only activities that are in some way connected to research are to be registered. The LUCRIS database is only accessible to employees at Lund University. The research portal provides a comprehensive image of the research at LU to external target groups.
Who can see and reuse the data I enter in LUCRIS?
Your personal profile, your research outputs, activities, projects and prizes are all searchable in Lund University research portal. The externally open research portal showcases your research to:
- Other researchers: in and outside your existing networks, which can lead to new collaborations and projects.
- Financiers and donors: LUCRIS allows you to send links when reporting – to research financiers for example – that highlight the various forms of output a certain contract has generated.
- Media: a clear and updated profile in LU’s research database makes it easier for the media to find the right person at LU.
- Students and interested members of the public: the opportunity for students and interested members of the public to closely follow research in its different expression and forms.
