The PTCRIS program from the FCT|FCCN aims to ensure the creation and sustained development of a national integrated information ecosystem, to support research management according to the best international standards and practices. Central to this framework is the synchronization framework PTCRISync that relies on ORCID as a central hub for information exchange between the various national systems and international systems. PTCRISync will enable researchers to register a given research output at one of the interconnected national systems, and automatically propagate that output to the remaining ones, thus ensuring global consistency of the stored information.
More information about PTCRISync can be found in the following documents:
