The Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R)

The Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) supports research institutions and funding organisations in the implementation of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researcher («Charter & Code») in their policies and practices. The concrete implementation of the «Charter & Code» aims to promote and improve the recruitment, the working conditions and the careers of researchers while concurrently contributing to the development of the European Research Area.

Research institutions acting in line with the principles of the «Charter & Code» are authorised to use the logo HR-Excellence in Research. The logo implementation comprises five phases:

  • 1. Internal Analysis of the institution according to the «Charter & Code” principles
  • 2. Development and publication of an Action Plan
  • 3. Review and approval of the logo by the European Commission
  • 4. Implementation and self-assessment (every two years) of the Action Plan
  • 5. External evaluation (every four years)

Please, refer to the Euraxess website for more information on the HRS4R process.
