The National Electronic Scientific and Information System “URIS” is a multifunctional information and telecommunication system that provides collection, formation, processing, storage, use of data and information on the sphere of scientific and scientific and technical activities of Ukraine, ensures the implementation of the functions of its subjects, information support and support of their activities.
The system is available at: nauka.gov.ua
At the beginning of its creation, the System was supposed to become a center for combining data on the results of professional scientific and technical activities of Ukrainian scientific institutions, higher education institutions and scientists themselves. For this purpose, a CRIS system (current research information system) was to be created, which would serve to combine and present aggregated data, act as a tool for making management decisions in the field of science in Ukraine and promote better coverage of the results of domestic research at the international level.
The research at the first stage of the System’s creation showed that a significant part of the data to be reflected in the System was not digitized, collected without proper control and could not be a reliable source of information. In addition, the study of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, in particular by the Directorate of Science and Innovation and the Directorate of Digital Transformation, identified a number of processes and procedures performed by scientific institutions, higher education institutions and scientists in the course of their professional activities that need to be improved and automated.
Taking into account the identified aspects, the MES decided to expand the functions of the System by automating some processes and procedures related to the professional activities of Ukrainian scientific entities.
Currently, the National Electronic Scientific Information System has the following functions:
Aggregation of data on the sphere of scientific and scientific and technical activities of Ukraine.
Automation of certain procedures and processes of the subjects of the Ukrainian scientific sphere.
Ensuring the generation of data that is not available in available sources of information.
Ensuring data confirmation by verified users of the System.
Combining data, presenting them and providing users with analytical tools for their research.
Aggregation of information useful to domestic scientists, employees of scientific institutions and higher education institutions on a single resource.
The following results are planned to be achieved by fulfilling the functions of the System:
Ensuring openness of data on Ukrainian science.
Simplification of the process of searching for information, data, equipment, services and resources for research.
Simplification of the process of searching for performers of research-intensive projects.
Simplification of the process of preparing analytical information for management decision-making.
Simplification of procedures for filling out applications, forms, and reports for Ukrainian scientists, research institutions, and higher education institutions.
Improving the presentation of domestic research results in the global scientific community.
The developer and technical administrator of the System is the State Scientific and Technical Library of Ukraine.
