HR Strategy for Researchers
HR Excellence in research

The “HR Strategy for Researchers” is a set of initiatives aimed at the implementation of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for Recruitment (C&C), grouping the EU principles that rule the rights and duties of research institutions/universities and researchers at all  stages of their career. 

The adoption of a Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R), incorporating these principles, allows public or private research institutions to assure a more sustainable career of researchers, according to the EU recommendations, and to be acknowledged as Human Resources Excellence in Research.

In recognition of Unifg commitment to continuously improve its human resources policies in line with the European C&C Principles and to achieve fair and transparent recruitment and appraisal procedures, the European Commission on 10th March 2010 has granted Unifg with the ‘HR Excellence in Research’ award.
