On March 5, 2013, the University of Barcelona (UB), member of the League of European Research Universities (LERU), signed the ‘European Charter for Researchers’ (the ‘Charter’) and the ‘Code of Conduct for the recruitment of researchers’ (the ‘Code’), thereby emphasising its commitment and determination to support the European Commission initiative, with a view to promote and improve the recruitment, the working conditions and the careers of researchers while concomitantly contributing to the development of the European Research Area.
Following the recommendations of the European Commission, and in order to define its ‘Human Resources Strategy for Researchers’ (‘HRS4R’), an internal UB Work Group was formed to carry out the Internal Analysis in terms of assessing the compliance to autonomic, national and European legislation. The results of the survey highlighted 11 aspects which together with the compliance of the autonomic, national and European legislation had been taken into account to produce an Action Plan to reduce the gaps detected in the UB procedures regarding the professional welfare of its employees, the acquirement of better skills and competences, and the development of their career in agreement with the HRS4R recommendations.
Please, see below the Action Plan (2015-2016), revised version April 24, 2015, to support the Implementation of the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers at the University of Barcelona.
