Human resource excellence in research is promoted by the European Commission recommendation of 11 March 2005 on the European Charter for Researchers and on a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. This 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 researchers. The aim of the Charter is to ensure that the nature of the relationship between researchers and employers or funders is conducive to successful performance in generating, transferring, sharing and disseminating knowledge and technological development, and to the career development of researchers. The Charter also recognizes the value of all forms of mobility as a means for enhancing the professional development of researchers.
Having endorsed the 40 principles of Charter and Code, YSMU is committed to start the procedure and undergo all the subsequent cycles of the implementation of these via the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) which is being implemented by EURAXESS.
