Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The Search services allow you find all content indexed in the CORDIS repository and website.

Simple search

Enter a term (word) in the search box, available on all CORDIS pages next to the header 'tabs'. A simple search offers you results within all main content types, programmes and subjects in all CORDIS languages.

Experienced users who know the search syntax (see below) can also enter queries directly in the simple search box.

Advanced search

Benefit from additional features such as searching on exact sentences or excluding certain words within chosen content types, programmes, subjects etc. without necessarily knowing the exact search syntax.

Refine search results

Narrow down the results list with the refinements regardless of your entry point to search.

Edit query

Selecting 'Edit query' will open a box with the search query at the top of the search results. This feature will be helpful for advanced users wanting to learn and use the search syntax. The search query is displayed in edit mode and can be modified by the user.

Download search results

Search results can be downloaded by choosing the 'Download as XML' or 'Download as CSV' links. XML is a suitable format to reuse content in other systems, while CSV provides comma-separated values that can be used by spreadsheet applications.

Only the list displayed on the page will be downloaded; select the required results per page (default is 10 results, maximum is 100) before downloading.
