HR Excellence in Research – Science comes first
The institute found itself in an elite group of institutions that have the right to use the HR Excellence in Research logo. The European Commission awards this prestigious distinction to institutions that provide researchers with the best working conditions – they guarantee a transparent recruitment process, employment stability, career opportunities as well as substantive and financial assistance in research projects.
On May 12, 2016, ŁUKASIEWICZ – the Textile Research Institute signed a declaration of support for the “European Charter for Researchers” and the “Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers” and thus joined the group of scientific and research institutions that recognize the value of the principles contained in these documents and commits to their use. These principles correspond to the scientific and research and personnel policy pursued by ŁUKASIEWICZ – the Institute of Textiles. The goal is to increase the attractiveness of the Institute’s offer for researchers by providing them with favorable working conditions, increasing the quality of scientific research and innovation, and increasing international mobility.
The Institute with the HR Excellence in Research logo
The right to use this mark confirms the fulfillment of the requirements of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, which set out the rules for employing researchers, working conditions to be guaranteed and development opportunities that should be provided to them. Both documents form the basis of European Union policy aimed at promoting research and making scientific careers more attractive. By implementing the Charter and the Code, the Textile Research Institute confirms its plan to support the efforts of the European Commission to contribute to the development of an open and attractive European science market for researchers in ERA – the European Research Area.
Institutions that have the HR Excellence logo are systematically evaluated in terms of maintaining the standards adopted by the European Commission.
