Poznań University of Economics and Business has been presented with the HR Excellence in Research logo, awarded by the European Commission to institutions which implement the provisions of the European Charter for Researchers and a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. It is a mark of quality which confirms that our University's academic recruitment process is transparent and that we create favourable conditions for academic work and career development.
Awarding the HR Excellence in Research logo is one
of the European Commission's tasks carried out as part of the Human
Resources Strategy for Researchers, with the aim to ensure more
attractive working conditions for researchers in the EU. This is
supposed to increase the number of academic staff at European
institutions. The European Commission supports institutions which
implement the provisions of the European Charter and Code by organising
meetings and discussion panels for the institutions involved. Moreover,
it promotes such institutions among international organisations and
researchers as entities that provide the best conditions for academic
work and development.
The European Charter for Researchers
describes the rights and obligations applicable to both researchers and
institutions which employ them, as well as organisations which provide
research funding. Its provisions concern working conditions, academic
career development, mobility and academic guidance for young
The Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers
describes the principles of recruitment of researchers which should be
followed by institutions that employ them to ensure equal treatment of
all researchers in Europe. The principles stipulate transparency while
providing information about competitions for posts, supporting
professional development at all career stages and non-discrimination on
any basis, such as age, sex, origin or language.
