The universities of the A4U foster excellent human resources policies for researchers

After recently awarding Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, all of the A4U universities have been acknowledged by the European Commission with the “HR Excellence in Research” award. This recognition supports those research institutions and funding organisations for aligning their human resources policies and strategies with the principles of the European Charter and Code for Researchers, fostering attractive research careers.

The process usually starts off by creating a multidisciplinary team that carries out several consultations within the academic community. The aim is to design an Action Plan that allows achieving a stimulating and favourable working environment, which should not only attract the best researchers in the world, but also keep their talent.
