Poster presented at the VIVO Conference 2014. Innovative interdisciplinary and multi-institutional portals to stimulate networking and collaboration across institutional and national boundaries. Research networking is facilitated through web-based expertise profiling systems—research networking tools (RN tools)—that aggregate research and scholarly information about faculty members and investigators to enable the rapid discovery and recommendation of experts to address new or existing research challenges and to facilitate new interdisciplinary collaborations. While most RN tool implementations focus on harvesting and displaying expertise from a single institution and across traditional academic organizational structures, this session will examine the flexibility of Elsevier’s Experts Portal to deliver innovative multi-institutional, cross-sector, and international semantic expertise portals in partnership with universities and other research institutions. These multi-institutional expertise portals are a key to stimulating networking and collaboration across typical research silos.
