Human Resources Strategy for Researchers


The European Charter for Researchers and The Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers: Adhesion of the University of Pavia to “Human Resources Strategy for Researchers”



The European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers are a set of general principles and requirements which specify the roles, responsibilities and entitlements of researchers and of employers and/or funders, as well as the requirements that should be followed by employers and/or funders when appointing or recruiting researchers.

The Charter and Code are intended for all European Union researchers at any career level, regardless of their type of contract.

In September 2012, the University of Pavia signed a declaration of interest to join the Human Resources Strategy (HRS) Group and fully implement the The European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, following the European Commission Recommendations of 11th March 2005.

European Institutions that subscribe to the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers must develop a working plan articulated in five main steps.

Step 1 - internal analysis: The research institution carries out an internal analysis in terms of internal regulations and national laws according to a standard template which groups all 40 Charter & Code principles into four areas ('Ethical and professional aspects', 'Recruitment', 'Working conditions & Social security' and 'Training'). In this first step, a survey can be administered to researchers.

Step 2 - action plan: The research institution defines its "Human Resources Strategy for Researchers" based on the results of the internal analysis and presents the actions proposed to ensure and/or improve alignment with the Charter & Code principles. The research institution publishes the action plan on its website.

Step 3 - acknowledgement: The analysis and the action plan are reviewed and acknowledged by the European Commission. The Acknowledgement implies the right to use the “HR Excellence in Research” logo.

Step 4 - self-assessments: The research institution implements its HR strategy and conducts a self-assessment of the action plan after two years.

Step 5 - external evaluation: Every four years the European Commission carries out an external evaluation of progress made towards the objectives of the research institution action plan.

In October 2013, a Questionnaire will be administered to all Researchers of the University of Pavia (including doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows).
