Prizes and Distinctions

The purpose of the module 'Prizes and Distinctions' is to show information on prizes and other professional distinctions that have been awarded to researchers at Lund University. On this page you will find why you should enter prizes to LUCRIS and how to do it.

Why you add prices in LUCRIS

By adding received prizes you can showcase your achievements. This contributes to create a more complete picture of you as a researcher, and of the research at Lund University. You can put the prize in its context by creating relationships between the prize and other information in LUCRIS. Connect a project, a research output or other activities to the prize if related.

Be aware that external people added to a prize must be asked for their consent. All who are added (both external and internal people) will receive the role 'Recipient'.

You are free to choose to enter any prizes and distinctions which you as a researcher at Lund University wish to showcase on the Research portal.

How to add prizes

The easiest way to enter prizes is to log into LUCRIS, click on the green button named 'Add Content' and then select 'Prizes and Distinctions'. You then choose the type which matches your prize best.

Organisations which want to be able to edit their researchers' Prizes can give an administrator the role 'Editor of Prizes'.

Prizes in the Research portal

There is no review procedure for prizes. Registered prizes become visible straight away in the portal if the visibility is set to public. Sometimes the database needs a short while to load before the prize can appear.
