Commitment to the HRS4R initiative

The institutions that make up Université Grenoble Alpes began the process to obtain the European procedure Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) label in 2019 for their HR strategies.

Why obtain the HRS4R label?

By committing itself to this labeling process, UGA participates in the construction of the European Research Area and complies with the recommendations of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for Recruitment.

Improving working conditions and attractiveness

This approach is part of the continuous improvement process in the institutions and will contribute more broadly to the improvement of working conditions for all staff. It will also help to strengthen the attractiveness and international influence of UGA, particularly in terms of recruiting staff.

Indeed the HRS4R label identifies, on the European jobs portal Euraxess Jobs, institutions and organizations that offer a stimulating and favorable working environment for researchers.

An asset for European funding

Obtaining the label is also an asset for obtaining funding from Horizon 2020, the flagship program for funding research and development activities in Europe. Article 32 of the grant agreement for the Horizon 2020 actions requires beneficiaries to take measures for the implementation of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers in terms of working conditions, recruitment processes and career development.
