EURAXESS Rights sets out the rights and obligations of
researchers and their employers.
The Commission Recommendation on the "European
Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for
the Recruitment of Researchers" of 11 March 2005 is a
set of general principles and requirements which
specifies the roles, responsibilities and entitlements of
researchers as well as of employers and/or funders of
The Human resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R)
To facilitate the implementation of the Charter & Code, guidance is provided by the "Human Resources Strategy for Researchers incorporating the Charter & Code". This mechanism is put into action on a voluntary basis, and is as simple as possible, avoiding cumbersome procedures and respecting the variety of situations across institutions.
The 'HR Excellence in Research' logo is awarded to research institutions and funding organisations that have been acknowledged by the European Commission for having made significant progress in implementing the Charter & Code.
Further information can be found at EURAXESS Rights.
