When IRIS is applied to the research field, researchers can perform all research administration tasks with a single log-in (www.iris.go.kr), and ministries and specialized institutions can prevent similar/duplicate research and plan collaborative research. In addition, it is expected that the regulation reforms will be ly applied to the research field through IRIS, increasing the efficiency of research administration.
IRIS is an integrated system established in cooperation with related ministries and institutes and has been promoted as a cross-ministerial project since June 2017 as part of the ‘researcher-centered R&D management system innovation’, a national task of the Moon Jae-in government. IRIS aims to resolve the inconvenience of research administration due to the difference in research project management regulations and systems for each ministry and institute.
