Logo ‘HR Excellence in Research’ and EUR
Erasmus University Rotterdam endorses the principles of the European Charter for researchers and European Code of Conduct for the recruitment of researchers.
As part of our endorsement of the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers, a project had been started with the aim of implementing the principles in the Charter and Code. Erasmus University has established an improvement plan based on the internal analysis.
Based on this improvement plan the European Commission awarded Erasmus University Rotterdam the HR Excellence in Research Logo in December 2014:
The EUR is delighted with this recognition of our efforts to be an excellent employer and, in the coming years, will execute the improvement plan. The execution of the actions will take the form of various projects involving cooperation with and between the faculties.
