About HRS4R process (Source: EURAXESS portal)
The Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) supports research institutions and funding organisations in the implementation of the Charter & Code in their policies and practices. Its implementation will render these institutions more attractive to researchers looking for a new destination.
HRS4R culminates in the recognition of human resources excellence in research by the European Commission for institutions that have made progress in adapting their human resources policies to the principles set out in the Charter & Code. Since the 1st of January 2017, a new, more demanding procedure has been in place, in which institutions apply to the European Commission for this award. One of the key points of the procedure is that it places a lot of emphasis on the need for institutions to make progress towards the principles of Open, Transparent, Merit-based Recruitment.
