The European Charter for Researchers is a set of general principles and requirements which specifies the roles, responsibilities and entitlements of researchers as well as of employers and/or funders of researchers. “Finance Think” endorsed the Charter on March 7, 2013.
The principles stemming from the Charter applicable to researchers include research freedom and ethics, accountability, good research practice, public engagement and supervisory role; while those applicable to employers and funders include recognition of the profession, non-discrimination, value of mobility and professional development and the like.
The Code of Conduct for the recruitment of researchers consists of a set of general principles and requirements that should be followed by employers and/or funders when appointing or recruiting researchers. “Finance Think” also endorsed the Code of Conduct along the Charter.
The principles stemming from the Code of Conduct include the issues pertinent to recruitment of researchers, their selection, valuation of CVs and seniority, recognition of mobility experience and qualifications, postdoctoral appointments and the like.
The HR Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) supports research institutions and funding organisations in the implementation of the Charter & Code in their policies and practices. The logo “HR Excellence in Research” identifies the institutions and organisations as providers and supporters of a stimulating and favourable working and research environment. Finance Think is a part of the HRS4R, and acquired the logo on January 28, 2014.
The Action Plan of Finance Think includes assessment of the internal situation and the necessary steps to full implementation of the Charter & Code in the working of the Association. You could approach it here.
