What is UniartsCRIS?

UniartsCRIS is a research information system where Uniarts Helsinki's teachers, researchers and doctoral students report annually their own Publications, Artistic activities and Research and other activities.

The deadline for 2023 reports is 31 January 2024.

Publications and artistic activities

Uniarts Helsinki report on its operations to the Ministry of Education and Culture annually. Artistic activities and research are central indicators of societal impact. The results of the publications have a significant impact, about 1 M€ / year on the University’s funding. The funding will be allocated to the academies in accordance with the university’s internal funding model. 

Artistic activity (e.g. public performances, exhibitions, concerts, compositions) is one publication type in the system and it’s reported under the Publications function. 

Please note that you can only report publications made in Uniarts Helsinki in UniartsCRIS. If you have done research in some other university before, we recommend you to register those publications in your ORCID profile. You can register all your publications there. You should be able to already see all your publications that are made in Finnish universities by searching your name in, where all Finnish universities report their research information.


You can update your own profile information in the system. Profiles are public but you can hide your profile if needed. Also service staff can add and update their profile information.

Research activities and expert tasks

Research activities and expert tasks are also reported to the UniartsCRIS system (e.g. expert assignments, international visits, presentations).

Conferences organized by uniarts

Conferences organized by Uniarts are reported to the system annually.

Connection to the national research portal

Uniarts research publications and artistic activities data are transferred to the national and public portal monthly (starting February 2023).


By connecting your ORCID iD with your Uniarts account you can transfer your ORCID iD between different services: from UniartsCRIS your ORCID iD goes to the national service, and there's a UniartsCRIS integration under development which will transfer your publication information directly to ORCID. See more information about connecting your ORCID iD to Uniarts services.
