Issue Date: 9-Nov-2016
Publisher: euroCRIS
Series/Report no.: euroCRIS Strategic Membership Meeting Autumn 2016 (EKT, Athens, Greece, Nov 8-10, 2016)
Conference: Strategic Membership Meeting 2016 – Autumn (Athens) 
The presentation merges the institutional and the research funder perspective to describe the gradual process to achieve a research information management system that operates "like a black box solution that doesn’t complain, does everything and is always perfect". While still far away from this ideal, significant steps have been taken to improve system interoperability. A cultural change is also required beyond the technological challenges to reach a solution that will satisfy researchers, institutions and research funders alike.
