UEFConnect is a search engine service into the expertise UEF has to offer, through which you can increase your researcher visibility. All UEF researchers and other experts have a personal profile in the service. UEFConnect also offers an arena for research groups to introduce themselves. The profiles can be linked to funding applications, for example.
Your name and title will be automatically imported to the service if you are employed by the UEF or you have concluded a grant researcher agreement in Mepco. Your contact information will be imported from HelpNet and your scientific publications from UEF CRIS. In addition, you can upload your CV and insert information about your work duties, research projects and potential teaching or societal activities. You can also link your other social media profiles to the service. The service is very search engine friendly.
If your UEFConnect profile does not appear automatically, the additional and/or extension of access rights can be applied for you by the department.
More information about UEFConnect, and instructions for editing your profile can be found in Heimo (requires UEF login).
UEF CRIS (Current Research Information System) is a database containing information about publications, expert tasks, research and education projects and international mobility periods of the university members.
You are expected to submit the information on the publications in UEF CRIS system as soon as they have been published. Other publications, projects, expert tasks and international mobility periods should also be stored into the UEF CRIS by you or in the way as has been agreed in the unit.
More information and instructions related to UEF CRIS can be found in Heimo (requires UEF login).
