Know more about the strategy

 

The “HRS4R” strategy is a European Commission initiative that supports research institutions and funding organisations in implementing the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (C&C) for the recruitment of researchers in their policies and practices.

The European Commission recognises with the logo “HR Excellence in Research” institutions that make progress in aligning their human resources policies with the 40 principles of the Charter and the Code, on the basis of a customised human resources action plan/strategy.

On 26 February 2021, the CSIC received the “HR Excellence in Research” award. This award is a recognition of the institution’s commitment to the development of a Human Resources (HR) strategy for researchers, designed for the CSIC’s application of the C&C principles. Making CSIC more attractive to researchers, improving also the attractiveness of national research systems and contributing to the development of the European labour market and the consolidation of the European Research Area (ERA).

Obtaining this award is the result of the analysis carried out in the last two years from the Headquarters Organization (ORGC) and with the collaboration of many researchers about the human resources policies of the institution, which resulted in the elaboration of the Action Plan to improve them. But, above all, this award should serve as an incentive for all of us to develop all the proposed actions over the next two years.

The implementation of the actions included in the Action Plan requires the involvement of the entire staff of the institution. It is an ambitious plan, which includes a large number of actions, of varying degrees of importance, and which affect different levels of the institution.

There are many actions at the level of directors, managers and research staff, who play a key role in providing a favourable, encouraging and stimulating work environment that promotes equal opportunities, ethical integrity and a balance between work and personal life. Activities in which the institution promotes active participation in the development of the Action Plan.

 

‘HR STRATEGY FOR RESEARCHERS’

 

Description: Institutions making progress in aligning their human resources policies with the 40 principles of the Charter and the Code

2021-2023 HRS4R ACTION PLAN

Description: The Gap Analysis and Action Plan were developed in an inclusive and open process involving a working group with representatives from all ORGC administrative units, trade unions and all professional categories of researchers.

The design and implementation of the action plan allows for the development of a governance model, coordination mechanisms and monitoring tools that will accelerate the adoption of new policies and practices for human resources management in research, which in turn will allow the CSIC to align itself with its European benchmarks.

HRS4R is a cross-cutting project that affects almost all functions of the institution:

  • It is a strategy embedded in the CSIC Strategic Plan 2018-2021 and 2022-2025.
  • Involves the CSIC Governing Board, the Executive Bodies and the Vice-Presidencies and Vice-Secretaries as the HRS4R Steering Committee (SC): Vice-Presidency for Scientific and Technical Research (VICYT), Secretary General (SEGE), Vice-Presidency for Institutional Affairs and Organisation (VORI), Vice-Presidency for International Affairs (VRI) y President’s Cabinet (GABPRE).
  • It creates a “Follow-up Working Group (FWG)” to take on the deployment of the HRS4R Action Plan, quality control and monitoring of indicators.
