boo euroCRIS SMM 2023 Pamplona


Eight years after our last event in Spain, the Strategic Membership Meeting held Nov 2015 at the Institut d'Estudis Catalans in Barcelona, euroCRIS is pleased to announce its return to the country for the Autumn 2023 Strategic Membership Meeting (SMM) in Pamplona. The event will be hosted by the Public University of Navarra (UPNA). Universidad Pública de Navarra (UPNA) operate the SIGMA Research-based PPC UPNA institutional CRIS and will present their latest work at the event.

The meeting will be held at the UPNA School of Engineering (ETSIAB, Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería Agronómica y Biociencias) in Pamplona (more details in the 'Venue' section below) from Tue Nov 21 to Thu Nov 23, 2023. As usual at euroCRIS meetings, the CERIF Tutorial and the Welcome Reception will be held on Tuesday afternoon, to be followed by (among others) a National Session on Day I (Wed Nov 22) and a number of contributions from euroCRIS members and Strategic Partners on Day II (Thu Nov 23).

This edition of the SMM will also see an in-person meeting of the CRISCROS working group of national and regional CRIS as a pre-event activity on Tue Nov 21. More details about this meeting will follow soon.



The schedule for the euroCRIS #SMM2023 is tentative and may change in the coming weeks.
