Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R)

What is HR Excellence in Research?

It is a prestigious award which is one of the activities of the European Commission as part of the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers, aimed at increasing the attractiveness of working conditions and career development of scientists in the EU.

The logo is awarded to European institutions that provide researchers with the best working conditions and transparent recruitment processes in line with the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.

The HRS4R logo is a tool with which the EC also wants to develop the European Research Area and increase the mobility of researchers from European institutions.
