HRS4R: "Human Resources Strategy for Researchers Incorporating the Charter & Code
More than 1000 european institutions have already subscribed the "European Charter and code for reseachers".
The charter is a basic document to drive European institutions towards the creation of a european Research Area: an open and clear job market for researchers.
The subscription of the Charter has not brought in the short term any visible action. For this reason the European commission has created a new tool theough a bottm up approach to support the C&C implementation: the project "Human Resources Strategy for Researchers Incorporating the Charter & Code”.
The University of Palermo is one of the first 40 european institutions that has taken part to the project and in march 2010 has been awarded the logo HR from the european commission for the progress made in the HR strategy for reserachers.
The project goes through 5 steps:
- Internal analysis;
- Action plan;
- Evaluation of the AP and Logo “HR Excellence in Research”;
- Internal evaluation after 2 years;
- External evaluation from the european commission after 4 years.
