D6 - European HR certification: Emerging themes from the consulation

Day 2 at 13:45 - The European Commission has commissioned Technopolis to undertake the feasibility study: ‘Feasibility study for the development of a certification mechanism for genuinely good HR management in the public research sector in Europe'. This was a nine month project which aimed to set out its findings by the end of 2013.

The study addressed the clarification of the concept of "good human resources management" in the public research sector and the identification of appropriate assessment criteria including among others open recruitment and excellent research. The study also addresses the practical aspects of setting up the required system at European level, including the associated costs and benefits.

Following wide consultation with stakeholders across Europe over the summer, the workshop set out emerging findings from the consultation. Strand - All Researchers (practice).
