HRS4R - Human Resources Strategy for Researchers
The St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences is now part of the European Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) serving the purpose of improving the working conditions of researchers in Europe. Within the framework of the programme, the St. Pölten UAS developed a set of measures and has now been honoured with the distinction “Human Resources Excellence in Research” for these measures as well as the first steps towards their implementation. As a consequence, the UAS is entitled to use the HRS4R logo.
The European programme is based on the “European Charter for Researchers” and the “Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers”. The charter is a set of general principles containing recommendations of the European Union for the improvement of researchers’ working conditions and career prospects. The HRS4R project is currently being implemented at our university. In the course of this process, the most important principles for the recruitment of researchers have been laid down in the OTMR policy and the catalogue of planned measures has been published in the action plan.
