The University of Warsaw has entered the renewal procedure of HR Excellence in Research award. During the upcoming month the actions under the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers, both those already undertaken and the ones that are planned to be implemented within the following years, will be duly reported to the UW community.


The campaign called “HR Excellence at the UW in June” is considered to inform members of the UW community about the procedures and actions at the University, which follow the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R). The HRS4R identifies the research institutions and organisations that support favourable and boosted working conditions for researchers throughout Europe as set out in the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.


The European Union’s strategy focuses on stimulating employment and economic growth, by setting up competitive, transparent and open labour market for researchers within four main areas:


  • labour and ethical aspects;
  • recruitment processes;
  • training courses and development;
  • working conditions.


The roles, responsibilities and rights of researchers and their employees are described in the “Charter and Code” to guarantee attractive research careers and enhance employment and working conditions for researchers across Europe.


The HR Excellence in Research award is received for a particular period. The University of Warsaw has initiated the application procedure of the renewal of the HR Excellence in Research.


“This year the European Union onsite visits are expected to evaluate the undertaken actions and their timing, as well as their impact on the University and its strategy. The reviewers will also meet representatives of our community to assess the recognisability of the HR Excellence in Research distinction,” Professor Sambor Grucza, the UW Vice-Rector for Cooperation and Human Resources, explained.


In June, details referring to the HR Excellence in Research award, related actions and activities, as well as academic teams in charge of the implementing processes, are duly reported:
