The presentation summarises the current status of the process for adding CRIS systems to the range of certified OpenAIRE data providers via the implementation of the CERIF-XML Guidelines for CRIS Managers v1.1.1. The case is made for the exposure of the CRIS metadata feed to OpenAIRE regardless of whether the associated institutional repository is already OpenAIRE-compliant. It is argued that the contextual metadata provided by CRIS systems may prove invaluable as a complement to the outputs delivered by literature and data repositories as we move towards a subject-based implementation of Open Science.
