Abstract: CRIS: Current Research Information Systems must take center stage as the mechanism of scientific information provision. In the ever-growing complex scientific world, we are faced with mounting challenges. Increasingly we are witness to pressures on universities and scientists to provide answers to the problems of society, while working in multi-disciplinary and cross-border teams, with increased funding competition. The need for quality scientific and technological information is apparent. Content management (with taxonomy) and sound information architecture is key. My thesis is that there is a strong need for intelligent CRISs, and that the Web search engines, powerful as they are, are not a replacement for a good CRIS. CRISs should be used for decision-making at all levels, for the management of research activities, and for the dissemination of results. CRIS, in this respect, is key for facilitating the processes of knowledge creation and management, and hence economic growth.
