Services for Research Administration

Centralised solutions for management and retrievability of research information and streamlined information flows across organizational boundaries

The amount of different research being produced is increasing rapidly along with the advent of research digitalization and open science. The number of the systems where the produced research outputs and other information are stored is alike increasing, resulting in wide range of separate and disintegrated information systems. The information is used in both research work and administrative processes, such as information retrieval, funding applications and reporting, publishing, the compilation of statistics and other dissemination of research data.

The solutions implemented by CSC compile scattered information into national data hubs that facilitate the utilization of research data and reduce administrative workload. The rationalisation of information flows lightens the administrative workload and makes the information more accessible and easier to find.  This will benefit researchers, research organisations, funders and decision-making bodies. In addition, research outcomes will be more accessible to citizens using it.

Our customers and partners include universities, other research organizations and research funders.

CSC Research Data Management Competence Center provides support for our customer organisations data support personnel.
