European research and innovation
What is CORDIS ?
CORDIS is the Community research and development information service.
It is an interactive information portal available at http://cordis.europa.eu/ to support European research and innovation cooperation.
The objectives of CORDIS are to:
- facilitate participation in the activities of European research
- publish the results of projects funded by the EU
- promote the dissemination of knowledge in order to reinforce the innovation capacity of enterprises
- contribute to bridge the gap between citizens and science.
The CORDIS website is currently offered in 6 languages, highly consulted and referenced on the web since 1994.
As the common repository for EU-funded projects and results for over 20 years, CORDIS publishes the formal deliverables collected by the European Commission and provides channels for added-value contributions from the research community.
Supporting activities include rewriting and translating raw results for broader audiences, news and events services, classification and re-usability of content, printed publications, as well as web publishing, collaborative and networking tools.
CORDIS works closely with all services involved in the execution of EU-funded research programmes and is financed under the Cooperation programme of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).
CORDIS is managed by the Publications Office of the European Union.
The top tasks of CORDIS are carried out through these services:
- Browse and find: all the EU-funded research projects, results and reports, multilingual showcases and National Contact Points.
- News and events: available daily and in 6 languages from the European Commission or contributed by the research community through CORDIS Wire.
- Partners service: an interactive platform to promote your organisation and expertise, find business or research partners, create groups and join networks, with search and filtering facilities to find the collaborators best matching your needs.
- Research*eu Results Magazine: to keep up with the latest exploitable outcomes, with regular Research*eu Focus editions on themes of interest.
- National and regional: a gateway to research and innovation in Member States and associated countries.
- User services: email notifications, RSS feeds, forums, facilities for re-use, helpdesk, training courses.
- Web publishing platform: for specific programmes, EU research activities and hosted applications.
- The transparent record of EU research funding: programmes, web services, calls for proposals, document library and publication references dating back to 1990.
