Centrale Nantes applying for the HRS4R award

Centrale Nantes began the initial assessment phase for the "HR Excellence in Research" award in October 2019.

What is the HRS4R Award?

The European Commission's Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) aims to guarantee the attractiveness of research careers and to improve the recruitment and working conditions of researchers throughout Europe. This entails voluntary respect of the principles set out in the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.

This initiative is designed to improve the practices of research institutions, in accordance with the 40 principles set out in these two documents with regard to the recruitment and working conditions of researchers. Although the term researcher is used in the title, the approach concerns all PhD students, faculty and research engineers working in the field of research.

Institutions that commit to developing an HR policy receive the HR Excellence in Research award.

Initial assessment phase

The initial phase involves an internal analysis of the institution's strengths and weaknesses. Working groups are already in place.
