CIP in 100 words

CIP is a JISC-funded Pilot project tackling the problem of information integration in large organisations. It focuses on maximising the value of obtaining flexible views of Bristol University research information derived from the range of departmental databases and University central systems, with added external content (such as from funder websites). CIP software aims to provide instant answers to questions such as “Who are all the researchers with an interest in subject X?”, “Which research across the University has been funded by sponsor Y?” or “The Vice Chancellor is visiting University Z next week, what are all the projects that the University of Bristol collaborates on with University Z?”.
