Preparing for HR Award at UCT


Human Resources Strategy For Researchers (HRS4R)

In 2020, the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague acknowledged the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.

The Charter and the Code oblige research institutions to create friendly working conditions, support professional development and apply transparent recruitment and selection procedures. It is intended for researchers and employers in both public and private sectors.

Based on the Charter and the Code, research institutions apply the so-called Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R). The institutions that comply with this obligation are awarded the HR Excellence in Research award, or the HR Award, by the European Commission.

The award obliges research institutions to continue in creating working conditions and transparent processes in the recruitment and selection of employees following the principles of HRS4R.

Benefits of the implementation of HRS4R for UCT as a research organization and researchers

  • The university demonstrates its compatibility with standards for research organizations in Europe and is more attractive and transparent as a member of consortia in international projects
  • Harmonization of internal regulations and HR work with the principles defined in the Charter and Code
  • Better international visibility thanks to the "HR Excellence" logo
  • Ensuring transparent recruitment, selection and evaluation of researchers
  • Creating conditions for a more attractive career in research
  • Better access to funds for research from European and Czech programmes supporting R&D, especially a better starting position in HORIZON EUROPE ( (including specific programs ERC, MSCA), TAČR, GAČR etc.

Current development:

Since 2020, in line with the UCT Strategic Plan, the preparation phase for the acquisition of the HR Award certificate has been underway. After the Working Group had been established, the GAP analysis was realized. Based on its results, the OTM-R checklist and the Action Plan were prepared, based on which measures aimed at fulfilling the HRS4R principles will be gradually implemented.

Initial phase: 1 July 2020 – 14 May 2021

Submission of revised application: September 2022
