The Human resources strategy for Researchers, also called “HRS4R”, aims to improve the practices of research institutions and funding organisations working in the field of research regarding the researchers’ recruitment and career. It is the subject of a label “HR Excellence in Research” granted by the European Commission to establishments engaged in this process.

This tool aims to implement the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (C&C) published in 2005, which gather 40 principles for researchers’ mobility and career, and make the European Research Area more attractive in terms of recruitment and working conditions for researchers worldwide.

All the 40 Charter & Code principles are grouped in four areas:

  • Ethical principles and professional aspects,
  • Recruitment,
  • Working conditions and social security,
  • Training.
