Get in touch with the team

Converis integrates the management of research information and internal workflows, bringing together data from external and internal sources into a single platform. Different stakeholders have different needs – that’s why Converis offers more than just information on projects and publications. Converis offers a holistic approach, covering the complete research lifecycle.

Converis is a powerful interface that links the various institutional systems that capture research-related information, creates standardization for compiling profiles and CVs, and reduces the need for repeated entry of information. Converis serves as a central integration hub for joining repositories, personal libraries, institutional databases, and an institution’s systems.

Offering unmatched configuration capabilities, Converis gives you control of the data model, workflows, user rights and integrations. Providing individualized analysis, you can assemble complete professional profiles for a comprehensive, up-to-date collection of all teaching, research and service-related activities.

We support you from your initial project idea through to the analysis of results generated by research activities.
