HUMAN RESOURCES STRATEGY FOR RESEARCHERS (HRS4R)
In June 2019, Fundación para la Investigación Biomédica del Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre (FIBH12o-i+12) signed the declaration of commitment to the principles of the Charter & Code, expressing the interest and commitment to initiate the process in the framework of the HRS4R.
The Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) emerges with the aim of making the research career more attractive for researchers and intends to give them the same rights and obligations in any European Union Member State, independently of the country they live in. The HRS4R is based in the principles stablished through the European Charter for Researchers, the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers and the Open, Transparent and Merit-based Recruitment policy recommended by the European Commission.
Entities adhering to this strategy receive the recognition of HR Excellence in Research. Fundación para la Investigación Biomédica del Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre welcomes the initiative of the European Commission and the recommendations in the frame of the strategy.
The process to obtain the recognition is a value tool for carrying a self-assessment of the current departments and services of the institution in human resources area, to improve the working conditions for research, making the institution an attractive place to develop a research of excellence. As a first stage in the process, the institution has developed a specific action plan which contains feasible measures towards the implementation of the strategy.
