Having started the initial application phase in the HRS4R process in October 2019, Centrale Nantes confirmed in writing in 2020 its endorsement of the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers and its commitment to implement the HRS4R.

The HRS4R - Human Resources Strategy for researchers - aims to ensure the attractiveness of research careers and to improve the recruitment and working conditions of researchers across Europe.

As a holder of the HRS4R award, Centrale Nantes aims to:
 
  • uphold the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers
  • provide visibility in our recruitment policy according to the principles of "Open, Transparent and Merit-Based Recruitment",
  • make progress in our recruitment and career management practices,
  • support and promote the mobility of researchers,
  • offer an attractive working environment for our staff involved in research.
 

The School intends to use this approach, which is geared towards staff with research-related activities, to improve its practices with regard to all its employees.

Jean-Baptiste Avrillier, Director of Centrale Nantes

In November 2023, Centrale Nantes will submit a self-assessment file to the European Commission, in accordance with the accreditation process and an updated action plan.  The European Commission will conduct an on-site audit to assess the effective implementation of the award within the institution in November 2026.
