European Charter for Researchers


Cracow University of Technology applies for the Human Resources Excellence in Research Logo.

Human Resources Excellence in Research Logo is an award granted by European Commission to institutions that assure compliance with the principles laid down in European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.

European Commission set the abovementioned documents in order to harmonize recruitment and employment standards on European labour market for researchers. The aim of the requirements laid down by the Commission is to promote career development of researchers and foster successful performance in generating, transferring, sharing and disseminating knowledge and technological development.

European Charter for Researchers specifies responsibilities and entitlements of researchers as well as of employers or funders of researchers.

The Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers consists of a set of principles that should be followed by employers or founders when appointing or recruiting researchers.

In order to obtain this prestigious reward Cracow University of Technology has prepared The Human Resources Strategy. The Strategy defines actions to be taken by the University to comply with standards set in "Chard and Code". European Commission accepted the Strategy provided that slight modifications would be introduced.
