provide an efficient reporting to Minstery of Education, Research and
Church Affaires (KUF) and Norwegian

meet the demand of data used in local planning and dissemination.

annual reporting for relevant parts of the database.
Routines for exporting both project and result data to FORSKDOK in
BIBSYS and Norwegian

relevant EU databases) are under development.
The new database is based on the experience the Section has from
working within the field since 1992 and participation in the
field both nationally and internationally, eg.
The new database is based on a recommendation from international work
on research documentation databases, CERIF.
