Thank you to the speakers and attendees of the 2014 Research Profiles Conference at the University of Melbourne.
I have added presentations to the agenda below
Sponsored by Symplectic/Digital Science
Theme: As with last year’s program, we continue to investigate how best to take a strategic approach to publicly profiling research; maximising Australia and New Zealand’s opportunity to communicate and collaborate on research in an international arena.
Unlike many regions of the world, Australian and New Zealand universities have long had the capability to comprehensively report on their research, both at an aggregate and individual researcher level.
Whilst much of this capability has been driven by government reporting, many of our universities have leveraged their mastery of their research information to create both public and internal research portals, dramatically increasing the number of people that are able to access information about a University’s activities. This one-day conference will explore how Australasian universities as a whole can leverage this capability to gain advantage on an international stage.
Topics covered will include:
* The international state of play in research profiling
* An assessment of the technologies and standards that assist in the syndication of research information, with a particular emphasis on VIVO as an enabling platform
* Local and International experiences of implementing research profiling systems
Who should attend?
Creating and implementing a University-wide research profiling strategy requires collaboration across university boundaries. The 2013 Research Profiles program aims to stimulate discussion around a vision that should appeal to research managers and decision makers, research technologists, those in media and public relations, and the library.
