CESAER publishes White Paper on Human Resources Strategy for Researchers

CEASER, the Conference of European Schools for Advanced Engineering Education and Research, has published a White Paper on the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers, sharing the experience of four member institutions.

In 2005, the European Commission recommended the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, In 2008, the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) was launched to support the endorsement and implementation of the Charter and Code. CESAER has set up a Task Force Human Resources that is committed to raising awareness of the Charter and Code and the benefits of the Human Resources Excellence in Research Award, and to encourage members to apply for it. The CESAER white paper provides and overview of HRS4R, the benefits for holders of the HR Excellence in Research Award, and essentials to get this award. It is based on the experience of and lessons learnt by four CESAER members implementing HRS4R and obtaining the award (Delft University of Technology (NL), Ghent University (BE), Politecnico di Torino (IT) and University of Strathclyde (UK)).
