Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) is a tool adopted by the European Commission through the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Charter & Code), designed to promote equal rights and obligations for researchers throughout the European Research Area.
The aim of HRS4R is to promote the adoption of the 40 principles defined in the Charter & Code that delimit the rights and responsibilities of researchers and entrepreneurs.
The development of the strategy implies obtaining the "HR Excellence in Research" that recognizes the excellence and alignment of human resources policies with the lines established by the Commission, creating a stimulating and favorable working environment for researchers.
IDIVAL joined the Charter & Code in October 2016 (Initial Phase). Endorsement of the Charter&Code and Notification of Commitment.
Subsequently, IDIVAL developed the Implementation Phase preparing a "Gap Analysis" and an "Action Plan" for Human Resources Management. The institution carried out an initial assessment based on an exercise to identify gaps between its current policies and practices versus the 40 principles of the Charter and Code. The Action Plan describes what actions the organization will develop.
