HR EXCELLENCE IN RESEARCH

HR EXCELLENCE IN RESEARCH

 

Hogeschool Gent (HoGent) has submitted on November 10th 2016  to the European Commission a HR Strategy for Researchers  which includes a gap analysis and action plan. In this way HoGent hopes to get awarded with the "HR Excellence in Research" label.

 

The European Commission has adopted a European Charter for Researchers and a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, a set of general principles which specifies the roles and responsibilities of researchers as well as of employers and/or funders.

HoGent endorses the recommendations of the Charter and Code and takes part in the HR Strategy for Researchers process.  As a first step, a gap analysis was conducted to map the current HoGent HR policy, in its relation to researchers and research activities, with the forty provisions of the Charter and the Code. The gap analysis showed that the HoGent policy already complies in many ways with the provisions of the Charter and the Code, but on the other hand that there are still a number of shortcomings to be noted. HoGent formulated different actions to overcome these (period 2017-2020). In order to adequately follow up the implementation of the HR Strategy for Researchers within HoGent, an annual report will be provided on the status of the implementation of these actions.

With the submission of the HR Strategy for Researchers, HoGent demonstrates its commitment to act in a responsible and respectable way and to provide fair working conditions to researchers, with a clear intention to contribute to the advancement of the European Research Area.
