University of Oxford:
Implementing Symplectic Elements as an expertise search solution

The University of Oxford has been a Symplectic client since 2009. Recently, the University expanded its long-standing Symplectic Elements instance by implementing the Discovery Module, creating its new Research@Oxford expertise search portal. David Saunders, Research Information Analyst, and Martin Carrolchick, Research Information Officer, presented at the 2023 European User Day in London on the context and implementation of the new portal.
