We are pleased to announce that PCG Academia is starting the implementation of the Sciencecloud service at the Forest Research Institute. Under the agreement concluded on May 10, 2021, PCG Academia will launch Scientific Records and Scientific Analytics tools at the Institute.

PCG Academia will deliver both Sciencecloud modules in the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, which will allow the systems to be quickly made available to the Institute’s employees. The launch will take place no later than 8 weeks after signing the agreement.

As a result of the project, the Institute will be able to effectively manage the process of preparation for the next evaluation of scientific activities, which will take place in 2022.

The Institute will use the Records module to collect and process information on the scientific achievements of its employees within all three evaluation criteria in accordance with the guidelines from the Ministry of Science. Then, using the obtained data, the Institute will be able to monitor and simulate the filling of publication slots by employees and optimally select publications for the best score thanks to the Analytics module.

Analytics and Records, together with the third module Repository, form Sciencecloud – a modern ecosystem for scientific information management. Sciencecloud is delivered as a cloud service, under which PCG Academia is responsible for, among others, timely adaptation of the system to dynamically changing legal regulations.
