RISIS-ETER represents an extension of the Tertiary Education Register (ETER; https://www.eter-project.com/) database that is supported by the European Commission through a service contract. RISIS-ETER provides an environment for enriching ETER with additional data in three respects: integrating additional variables from other RISIS datasets, particularly concerning research output (EU-FP participations from EUPRO, scientific publications from CWTS publications databse, patents from IFRIS-PATSTAT), extending the time coverage of ETER, and extending the geographical scope of ETER beyond Europe. RISIS-ETER is closely integrated and hosted by the same technical infrastructure as the register of public-sector research and higher education institutions OrgReg, but is a distinct database providing statistical data.
