Human resources strategy for researchers

The European Commission has created a tool to implement a human resources strategy for researchers (Human Resources Strategy for Researchers HRS4R) to support and finance research institutions for the implementation of the "European Charter for Researchers" and the "Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers", with the aim of contributing to the development of a European labor market that is attractive to researchers.

The RHS4R seal gives public recognition to institutions that advance the principles of open, transparent and merit-based recruitment, such as the so-called Open Transparent Based Recruitment.

In 2017, I3PT launched the recognition process in line with the principles of the Charter and the Code, with a GAP analysis and an Action Plan.

Stages to obtain the HRS4R seal:

  1. Internal analysis of the entity to detect deficiencies in accordance with the principles of the Charter and the European Code of the researcher, and to develop an action plan.
  2. Publish the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers on the institutional website.
  3. The European Commission recognizes that the research institution has adopted a human resources strategy for researchers and, if approved, grants the logo of excellence.
  4. Implementation and self-evaluation. The institution carries out an internal analysis within 24 months of obtaining the HR excellence in Research badge to ensure compliance with the action plan and to evaluate the progress made in human resource strategy.
  5. Renewal of recognition by the European Commission 5 years after recognition of HRS4R. During these five years the institution will have to apply the actions proposed in the initial action plan and update them.
  6. Commitment to quality and continuous improvement in the fulfillment of the phases.
