About

The Consortia Advancing Standards in Research Administration Information (CASRAI) is a not-for-profit standards development organization. We provide a forum and the mechanisms required to standardize the data that researchers, their institutions and their funders must produce, store, exchange and process throughout the life-cycle of research activity. We envision research teams maintaining a single authoritative file on their activities and being able to quickly produce any documents needed by funders and institutions from this single source file.

The key benefits we want to realize for the research community are:

  • Save time for researchers (applying & reporting)
  • Improve access to quality data for institutions and funders
  • Simplify the measurement of research impacts on society
