HR Excellence in Research

The European Commission wants to achieve a labour market that is open and transparent for researchers. To this end it has launched a European charter for researchers and a code of conduct for their recruitment. > Read more

The Universitat Rovira i Virgili endorses the basic assumptions of the charter and the code. Traditionally universities have sought to develop career opportunities for their employees and an open labour market and transparent selection process for researchers enhances the mobility and options of (young) researchers.

The "Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R)” incorporating the Charter & Code" is a procedure designed to assist research institutions in the implementation of the Charter and Code of Conduct. This procedure includes (among other things) an internal analysis of rules, regulations and practices and the drawing up of an action plan. > Read more

The charter and code contain forty principles. The internal analysis shows that most of the legislation, internal rules and practices at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili are in accordance with these principles. But to bring the rules and practices even further into line, the University has drawn up an action plan.

Research institutions acting in line with the principles of the charter and code are authorised to use the logo HR-excellence in research. The Universitat Rovira i Virgili is currently finalising the procedure and aiming to start using the logo.

The internal analysis and action plan (based on the gap analysis) are part of the application and can be consulted here.
