SAVE the DATE! Attracting skilled researchers through a strengthened HRS4R

Categories: HRS4R News

SEMINAR - BRUSSELS, 28 January 2016

While implementing the concept of the European Research Area (ERA), the European Commission is committed to increasing the attractiveness of research careers in Europe, and to improving employment and working conditions for researchers.

Recently, a series of expert workshops took place to 'strengthen' the current implementation procedure (HRS4R) of the principles of Charter and Code (C&C).

This seminar addresses high-level HR managers from institutions having already accomplished steps 4 and/or step 5 of the current HRS4R implementation procedure.

The maximum number of participants is limited to 60 and will be granted on a 'first come - first serve' basis (step 5 institutions are priority).

This seminar is organised in the form of a participatory meeting. The first part is focussed on the following issues:

  • What is the 'strengthened' procedure and how do I have to enter into it?
  • What is new in the procedure and how can I comply with the new requirements?
  • What else can be contemplated for the future?

The second part is dedicated to sharing best practice and experiences in training of researchers, equipping them with the appropriate skills and making them ideally suited to the future globalised Open Labour Market for researchers. The aim is to provide attractive satisfying research careers for those taking their place in the European market place, be it in academia or in business.

Participants are encouraged to come up with creative and innovative, but feasible ideas leading to a sound collection of those elements needed for shaping the future of our researchers' development thereby offering them modern and attractive research careers.

Programme and location as well as registration will be communicated in a few days via a link to the organiser’s registration website.
