This paper describes the background, objectives and methods of my doctoral research concerned with the support of the initiation of research collaboration with the help of information and communication technologies. The research is based on the assumption that providing more information about potential partners would lead to better-grounded decisions about collaboration. The purpose of this research is also to support and utilize Open Research. To address these aims, I suggest the design and creation of an ePortfolio that will aggregate information from the Internet, particularly Web 2.0 applications.
