The HR Excellence in Research Award (HR Award) is a prestigious European Commission award in the field of quality care for human resources in the research, development and innovation sectors. Via this award, the European Commission recognises those institutions that strive to align their human resources policies with the 40 principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The implementation of the Charter and the Code is ensured via the Human Resources Strategy For Researchers (HRS4R) framework. RILSA is currently implementing the various phases of HRS4R. Details of the procedure are set out in the Implementation Action Plan.
