Creating a CV

use the information you entered to create a neat CV (Curriculum Vitae) in an instant

The purpose of this module is to enable quick and simple re-use of data registered in the system for personal customized CVs. On this page you will find how you as a researcher can use the CV module.

Why the CV module exists

Once you as a researcher have spent time updating LUCRIS with relevant information about you and your research, you can receive the information back in the form of CVs. Financiers look at publicly available CVs to read about researchers. They do this to create context regarding an application or find suitable researchers for peer reviewing applications.

The CV module aims to make it ease for you to make publicly available CVs. You can choose between including all the information you entered in LUCRIS or only selected parts.

It is voluntary to use the CV module or create a public CV shown in the Research Portal.
