Human Resources Strategy for Researchers

The Human Resources Strategy (HRS4R) is a tool set up by the European Comission to support universities and research institutions as well as the organizations that finance research in the application of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for Recruiting Researchers with the aim of contributing to the development of the attractive European work market for researchers.

The Letter and the Code of Conduct are recommendations made by the Comission of the State members who are invited to apply them voluntarily:

European Charter for Researchers: The European Charter for Researchers is made up of general principles and requirements that define the roles, responsibilities and rights of the researchers and businessmen as well as financers.

The Code of Conduct for Recruiting Researchers: The Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, which does not differ much from the standard regulations used in the contracting process, emphasizes the importance of the contracting procedures, open and transparent, and the diverse and experienced selection committees.

The stamp of quality received from the European Comission, “HR Excellence in Research” identifies the university and institutions that generate and support an existing stimulating environment that is favorable to research work.
