The Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic is the main body supporting research and development funded from public resources. There are public, private and state operated universities, research organisations (e.g. Slovak Academy of Science - SAS), research institutes and private companies. The Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport realises the process of evaluation to perform R&D. The certificate for research organisation as result of evaluation process allows to use public resources for R&D.
Slovak Centre of Scientific and Technical Information (SCSTI) is the national information centre and specialised scientific library of the Slovak Republic focused on natural, technical, economic and social sciences. The SCSTI provides several information systems supporting R&D on national level funded by the ministry, i.e. Central Registry of Publication Activities, Central Registry of Theses and Dissertations, Central Information Portal for Research, Development and Innovation and Slovak Current Research Information System (SK CRIS).
Since 2007 SCSTI as provider of SK CRIS system, is member of EuroCRIS, not-for-profit organization, dedicated to the development of Research Information Systems and their interoperability. Since 2011 SCSTI has a delegate (Danica Zendulkova) in euroCRIS board with responsibility of TG CRIS-IR (institutional repository). The main goal of this task group is to reach the interoperability of Research Information Systems with Repositories.
