Researchers and Teacher-Researchers Recruitment Policy – Application for the HR Excellence in Research Award

In the Framework of the European Research Area (ERA), the European Union has sought to improve the attractiveness of researcher careers, promote mobility and create real career paths. 

To achieve these objectives, in 2005 the European Commission developed a European Charter for Researchers and a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, both of which define the roles, responsibilities and rights of researchers as well as those of their employers. The Charter and the Code (C&C) are designed to ensure attractive research careers and to improve the recruitment and work conditions of researchers in Europe. 

The Paris Descartes University signed the European Charter for Researchers on10 July 2006 and renewed its commitment on the Board of Governors of 28 June 2016.

In the article 32.2 of the Model Grant Agreement of the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation H2020, The European Commission strongly recommends (2014-2020) to implement the HRS4R strategy, specifically for the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions.

These objectives are fully in line with the policy of support and excellence in research and the Human Resources policy at Paris Descartes University.

The model proposed by the European Union in the context of the European Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R), provides a useful and effective framework for efforts that have already been pursued in the University. Indeed, with a voluntary and quality approach, the University will continue to improve the recruitment process and the career supervision for the Research personnel.

The momentum created by the labelling application from the application to the follow-up and the effect of all the actions will significantly benefit to all personnel categories who contribute to research activities and excellence objectives.
