Charter and Code

The aim for the project “Forskaren i fokus - Charter and Code” is to ensure that Western Norway University of Applies Sciences (HVL) achieves the European Commission’s “HR Excellence in Research Award”.

This award can be received by institutions that can document committment to continuously improving their HR practices to ensure a stimulating work environment, attractive working conditions and professional career development for researchers. The institutions must also ensure open, transparent and merit-based recruitment.

In order to achieve the certification, HVL is currently carrying out a self-assessment on 40 different principles and requirements and are preparing an Action Plan for quality improvement on these measures.
