ECOOM-UHasselt manages the semantics of data-indicators and classification lists of research, more specifically publications, scientific disciplines, financial lists and technology domains. To this end, ECOOM-UHasselt manages the semantics associated with each of these lists in consultation with the various stakeholders and taking into account national and international trends.
The focus is both on defining an unambiguous semantic of the different classifications as on updating and extending the existing classifications. This will lead to an increased quality of classifications and will play an important role in the context of administrative simplification of research reporting.
