Human Resources Strategy for Researchers

As part of the work aimed at increased internationalisation and increasing the internationally competitive research, Jönköping University 2016 endorsed the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. With the endorsement of the Charter & Code, Jönköping University commits the stated principles and will guarantee a research environment conditions as expressed in the document.

The work on carrying out a gap analysis on the basis of the EU 'Human Resources Strategy for Researchers' (HRS4R) has started and  there is a focused work on completing this. Taking part in the gap analysis work will be the Associate Deans of research and Associate Deans of doctoral programmes at the Schools as well as representatives from HR within Jönköping University.

Work on the analysis of personnel policies and other regulations will be based on 40 principles in four groups:

  • Ethical and professional aspects
  • Recruitment
  • Working conditions and social security
  • Training

Jönköping University will then draw up a plan of action with measures that are designed to guarantee the working environment and such working conditions as are expressed in the Charter & Code. We expect to be able to submit our application for HR certification to the EU Commission during spring 2018.
