Human Resources Strategy in Research – HRS4R
Project: HR Excellence in Research University of Ostrava
Reg. No.: CZ.02.2.69/0.0/0.0/16_028/0006225
The University of Ostrava obtained one of significant awards related to the HR policy in research. It has succeeded to fulfil strict criteria of the European Commission and to obtain the HR Excellence in Research Award. Among other institutions having this award, there is for instance Swiss CERN or the University of Oxford.
OUR PROGRESS SO FAR
In 2005, European Commission created the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers to contribute to development of an attractive, open, and permanent European labour market for researchers, where regulations shall enable to recruit and keep high quality researchers in environment supporting effective work and productivity.
European policy of human resources management in the field of science and research has been supported also by Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports by means of Operational Programme Research, Development and Education. University of Ostrava has also joined this programme and has become a successful applicant for support from the Ministry of Education with the project “HR Excellence in Research na Ostravské univerzitě”.
In November 2017, University of Ostrava sent commitment letter to European Commission including endorsement of principles of Charter and Code and commitment to take the necessary steps to implement HR strategy in compliance with principles of Charter and Code to obtain the “HR Excellence in Research Award”. Consequently, by November 2018, we must provide the European Commission with results of our Gap Analysis and Action Plan.
University employees got involved in the project by completing a survey, which was distributed through the university in the second half of May 2018.
To achieve the best results and correct procedures in processing the application for the HR Excellence in Research logo, we have cooperated (and we are going to keep cooperating) with other universities as well, Czech and foreign, in the form of international workshops and study visits.
The European Commission awarded UO the “HR Excellence in Research Award” in May 2019.
We performed Interim Assessment in June 2021. European Commission will now assess the results of the Interim Assessment. Once it will be done, our progress and new targets will be assessed every three years.
