We are proud to inform that Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń was granted HR Excellence in Research award.
Promoting excellence involves creating an environment for research, training and career development of researchers as well as their mobility. We are sure that implementing regulations of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers will help to create the best environment for the researchers.
In 2015 the Board of Rectors of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń has ratified the letter of support to the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. Charter and Code contain principles to promote human resources strategy and improve the conditions of recruitment and work for researchers.
During the Charter & Code implementation process the university evaluated its operations, policies and procedures against the Charter & Code principles. Information on strengths and weaknesses and recommendations for improvements were collected by the working group from researchers and from other personnel involved in or supporting research activities. Although most of the recommendations of the Charter & Code are already to a large extent implemented in the Polish legislation and in the internal regulations of the NCU, further advancement of these principles is also fully in line with the strategic goals and on-going development plans of the university.
A strategic plan (HRS4R) is being developed within the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń for implementing the principles of the Charter and Code.
By implementing the Charter & Code, NCU aims at consolidating the attraction of NCU as a stimulating working environment for researchers, and aligns its strategic goals with the transnational initiative of the European Commission to enhance the quality of research and innovation in Europe. NCU publishes its Action Plan for the years 2015-2017.
