An Institition in SEEK is where someone is employed or works. It is normal for an Institution to have a physical location - a set of buildings in which People work.

SEEK does not impose any constraints on the granularity of the Institution so it may represent a whole university or company, or be limited to a specific site.

An Institution has the following associated information:

  • The title of the Institution
  • A reference to an avatar / logo for the Institution
  • The two letter country code
  • The name of the city where the Institution has its headquarters
  • The address of the Institution within the city
  • A URI to the webpage for the Institution

A response for an Institution such as that for a Create, Read or Update includes the additional information

  • References to registered People who work at the Institution
  • References to the Projects in which the Institution is a partner.
