Self-help and support

This page is intended for those who need help using LUCRIS. On this page you will find information about support, all our instructional videos and further links.

The support

The LUCRIS support organization is semi-centralised. This means that you can submit all questions about LUCRIS and the Research Portal via the LU service desk, which then forwards the questions to us. The questions are distributed depending on where they are best answered, within the LUCRIS administration or with your local support at the faculty.

If you want to know how we are organized in the administration of LUCRIS and who has what responsibility, you can look at the page about us.
