European Charter and Code and HR excellence in Research
HR Excellence in Research is a seal of quality awarded to Uppsala University in February 2019.
The Charter and Code (the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers) is a framework developed by the European Commission with a number of principles and requirements for researchers, teachers and doctoral students. It aims to improve the conditions for free research, promote the open labour market for researchers, and promote access to and exchange of knowledge.
The certification means that Uppsala University is a higher education institution that meets many of the stringent EU requirements for a responsible and professional employer, and that we are committed to continuous quality work in the following areas:
- Recruitment and selection
- Working environment and social conditions
- Doctoral education, skills enhancement, and career development
- Ethical principles and professional responsibility
Implementation of the European Charter and Code is a multi-year quality process. A certification system called the Human Resource Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) is used to support implementation.
This means that the University:
- Conducts a GAP analysis against the 40 principles of the Charter and Code as well as the principles of Open, Transparent Merit-based Recruitment (OTM-R).
- Develops action plans with suggestions for improvement and systematically monitors the results of these.
- Is evaluated by the European Commission.
Implementation of the Charter and Code through HRS4R is a multi-year quality process. You can follow the implementation process at Uppsala University here.
