Any organisation relies on its resources. Universities and Research Centers are not different. The material means and the human means are the basis to create innovation, to reinvent the future, to prosper and foster the society.

The European Research Area (ERA) since 2000 has created the Research framework for research, development and innovation in Europe, based on the idea of free circulation, openess and talent.

The creation of this proper environment for research was linked to the need of basic recommendations for the recruitment of the best possible talent. Thus, in 2005, the European Commission adopted a European Charter for Researchers and a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, the so-called “Charter&Code”.

Linked to this, “EURAXESS – Researchers in motion” was created as a portal to provide with information, support and access to jobs in Europe.

The HR Excellence Award provides with the quality recognition from the European Commission that the institution awarded fulfills the Principles in the Charter & Code for Researchers and has identified their own limitations and provided with the proper future actions for improving.

The University of Valladolid has decided to follow this path of quality assurance in the Research and Recruitment. The path has started for us in 2017.
