The European Commission has undertaken a “Human Resources Strategy for Researchers” as a tool that helps employers and funders put the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers into practice.
The concrete implementation of the Charter & Code by research institutions will render them more attractive to researchers looking for a new employer or for a host for their research project. Funding organisations implementing the Charter & Code principles will contribute to the attractiveness of their national research systems and to the attractiveness of the European Research Area more generally. The logo “HR Excellence in Research” will identify the institutions and organisations as providers and supporters of a stimulating and favourable working environment.
