3. Haris public portal pulls data from Haris database, and is also integrated with researchers’ personal Hanken webpages (for example, This public portal gives an overall view of the publications, activities and projects of Hanken researchers. Highlighted information in Haris is displayed on your personal Hanken webpage.

4. For you as an individual researcher, Haris not only serves as a research portfolio where you collect all your academic achievements. Haris data can also be exported to create and update your CVs in different ways for various purposes. Haris proves to be a useful tool to disseminate information about your research in different channels.

Another key feature of Haris is that the content in Haris is selected and updated by you yourself, ensuring that you have complete control over your public profile.

Furthermore, PURE is CERIF (Common European Research Information Format) compliant, which means that if you move to another university or institute, your Haris records can move with you, since most universities and institutes use PURE or other CERIF compliant systems.
