HRS4R labelling process

HRS4R labelling process

European Label HRS4R

The European Human Resources Strategy for Researchers, also known as HRS4R, aims to improve the practices of research organisations and institutions in terms of ethics, recruitment and working conditions of researchers.

Within the framework of the European Research Area (ERA), the European Union has sought to promote the attractiveness of the research profession, encourage mobility and build real career prospects. To achieve these objectives, the European Commission developed in 2005 a European Charter for Researchers and a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, both of which define the roles, responsibilities and rights of researchers and their employers. The Charter and Code (C&C) are intended to ensure attractive research careers and to improve the recruitment and working conditions of researchers in Europe.

These objectives are fully in line with the policy of supporting excellence in research of Université Paris Cité and the IPGP, aiming to strengthen the attractiveness and international influence of the two institutions and to ensure their proper integration in the European Research Area.

The European Strategy of Human Resources for Researchers is the subject of a label HR Excellence in Research granted by the European Commission to the institutions engaged in this approach.

The IPGP is preparing an application for the label, which was voted by its board of directors on 20 June 2021:
