Research@Leibniz University is based on research information system data

The research portal “Research@Leibniz University” of Leibniz University Hannover (LUH) pools selected information on researchers, their projects and publications at different organisational levels. By linking this information, the portal provides comprehensive insights into research at LUH as well as its internal and external collaborations:


The research portal, which was previously only accessible via the on-campus network, has now been activated to showcase research conducted at the university, as well as to promote networking with external partners. Moreover, profiles of researchers and organisational units can be found via search engines. The portal therefore offers a number of advantages to researchers.

It is based on data from the research information system (FIS). Via the FIS backend, researchers can update their profile on the portal, for example by uploading a photo or by entering key research areas. Furthermore, information on publicly funded projects can be activated for the research portal. It is up to the researchers to decide what information about their research is publicly accessible. Other academic activities, such as participation in conferences, publishing activities, awards or memberships can also be recorded in the FIS and displayed on the portal. The research information system is a valuable tool for researchers, not only because it effectively presents their expertise, scientific publications or research profiles, but also because of the option to export data for further use.
