Human Resources Excellence in Research

FIDIS is currently reviewing its policies and practices for the management and promotion of research careers in order to be eligible for the European Human Resources Excellence in Research (HRS4R) award.

This award recognizes the institutions which seek to improve the working conditions of their research personnel regarding their selection, recruitment and career development, among other aspects, in accordance with the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.

HRS4R is a tool intended for helping organizations improve the efficiency, effectiveness and impact of the actions which must be carried out in order to offer an attractive and supporting environment to attract and keep the best research talent.

Some renowned research centres have already been granted this award. FIDIS has already adhered to the Charter & Code and has notified its commitment to the European Commission. It is currently in the process of implementation, performing the GAP Analysis and preparing the Action Plan with the purpose of submitting them for evaluation before the end of 2019.
