The action plan

Specialized working groups made up of researchers and research support persons identified gaps were identified between the institutions' practices and the 40 principles of the Charter and the Code.

These gaps pointed to the need for improvement in terms of collaborative work, recognition of work and people, recognition of citizen engagement, and the importance of constant enrichment between research and training.

These working groups also identified four areas of work to respond to the community's demand and to reduce the gap between the practices of institutions and the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers:
  • Principle of collaborative work - Promoting the value of collectives
  • Interconnection or mutual enrichment Training/Research
  • Relationship of the university with its environment - "Citizen university"
  • Recognition of work and people
The various working groups with the academic and administrative community subsequently made it possible to identify suitable actions. These actions were discussed and presented at the public conference before being analyzed and presented to the steering committee for validation.

In total, 27 actions were identified. Each one falls within one of the four work streams, indicating the target to be achieved. Pilots and indicators are identified to monitor progress, presentations of the diagnosis and the action plan to the bodies of Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA) for feedback and approval, as well as submission of the dossier to the European Commission have all been organized.

UGA now has two years to carry out the first actions. A monitoring committee made up of the researchers of the project group and the members of the steering committee will ensure the progress of these actions through biannual meetings.
