Research Intelligence (RI) holds a unique position in the research support landscape, and serves as a bridge between research information specialists, library staff, programmers, and academic staff on the one side and policy makers, strategy advisors and management on the other side.
Topics relevant to RI are often accessible and of interest to staff from all sides of the above mentioned spectrum.
For this purpose, a national RI network was founded in 2017 .

The RINN serves as a community of professionals active on different aspects of research information processing, research assessment, and research policy/strategy.
The core activities of this network have so far focused on sharing best practices via networking opportunities and inspiring presentations during annual events.
