Implementation process

The implementation of the HRS4R is a continuous improvement process, including:

  • The endorsement of the principles of the Charter and Code.
  • Reviewing the internal policies, practices and procedures in order to assess the alignement of the institutions practices with the principles of the Charter and Code and the OTM-R (Gap Analysis), and elaborating an Action Plan aimed at improving such alignement. Gap Analysis and Action Plan are published.
  • Assessment by the European Commission and award of the HR Excellence in Research logo if deemed satisfactory.
  • Implementation of the Action Plan.
  • Internal review and external assessment (2 years after the initial award).
  • External assessment and award renewal (3 years after the interim assessment).
