HR Excellence in Research

The aim of the European Research Area (ERA) is to create an open labour market for researchers where they can move and interact freely, benefit from world-class infrastructures and work with excellent networks of research institutions.

It was created in 2000, is composed of all research and development activities, programmes and policies in the European Union that involve an international perspective. Together, they enable researchers, research institutions and businesses to circulate, compete and co-operate freely across borders.

In this context, EURAXESS - Researchers in Motion was launched to provide access to a wide range of information services and support to researchers who want to conduct their research career in Europe or who want to continue linked to research activities in Europe.

One of the three pillars of the EURAXESS, called Rights, aims at improving employment and working conditions for researchers in Europe and to help enhance the attractiveness of the research career in Europe.

One of the cornerstones of EURAXESS Rights section is the implementation of the European Charter for Researchers (European Charter for Researchers) and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers).
