LERU publishes paper on tenure-track programmes in Europe

The League of European Research Universities (LERU) has released a paper sharing its universities’ experiences with setting up tenure-track programmes over the past decade.

Tenure-track programmes support promising researchers in embarking on an academic career. By offering attractive career prospects, they allow universities to compete for talent internationally and help to build a more mobile research work force in Europe and beyond. The paper presents recommendations for universities, governments and the European Commission, calling on all of them to make their contributions to thinking up innovative and alternative career paths, by offering attractive positions based on open and merit-based recruitment, and by eliminating barriers to an open labour market for researchers in Europe.

LERU is one of the European stakeholder organisations which signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the European Commission in the context of the reinforced  ERA Partnership in 2012. Ensuring attractive careers and transparent and merit based recruitment procedures are goals of the ERA Partnership concept.
