LUCRIS / Converis GSM

LUCRIS GSM is a registration and monitoring system for PhD candidates. GSM stands for "Graduate School Management", and LUCRIS GSM should not be confused with LUCRIS PM (Publication Module). With the LUCRIS GSM module, all information concerning PhD candidates is stored in a uniform way and made accessible in one place. Converis is the software behind LUCRIS.

The LUCRIS GSM module offers new functionalities that are designed to facilitate the administrative processing of the PhD tracks:

  • All parties involved in a PhD track will now have access to relevant files.
  • You can register training- and supervision plans (OBP).
  • As a PhD candidate you can register your own courses. Finished courses recently registered in SAP will automatically be linked to your course registration.
  • The system supports various approvals that occur during the PhD track.
  • A large number of forms (annexes) pertaining to the Leiden University doctorate regulations are integrated into the system and will subsequently seize to exist on paper.
