      Ongoing work with the European Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R)

      In 2019, the University began to prepare for certification in accordance with the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (HRS4R). The purpose of the certification is to increase the University's attractiveness for researchers who perform internationally competitive research. On May 12, 2021, the application was submitted and now we are waiting for our evaluation.

      In the spring of 2020, work was done on planning a gap analysis based on the HRS4R principles. The work was coordinated by an internal working group (HR and AFSI) in collaboration with a steering group that includes the University Director, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor for internationalization, the Dean, HR Director and AFSI Director.

      On 26 May 2020, Vice-Chancellor Lars Niklasson signed a "Letter of Endorsement", which the University then sent to the European Commission. This means that the University undertakes to follow the statutes. We received a "Notification of Commitment" on 28 May 28 2020.

      Six focus groups were set up during April 2020, consisting of active researchers at different experience levels from all departments as well as staff from HR and staff working with postgraduate education. In June 2020, the working group organized six workshops where issues regarding a number of principles (below) were discussed.

      In the gap analysis, issues were analyzed based on 40 principles in four groups:

      • Ethical and professional aspects
      • Recruitment and Selection
      • Working conditions
      • Training

      During the autumn of 2020, a gap analysis was produced and anchored with the researchers of the University through an on-line survey. In the spring of 2021, the gap analysis was completed and based on it, the internal working group and the steering group put together an action plan that was submitted for consultation and agreed with the University's management during the month of April. These two documents with accompanying text on the process and implementation and a checklist for open transparent and meritated recruitment have led to a complete application. The University of Skövde submitted the application on 12 May 2021. Our application will be evaluated and after the evaluation and possible adjustments, we will receive the HRS4R award and the right to use the “HR Excellence in Research” logo. The work of implementing measures based on the action plan will start at the beginning of 2022 and continue in the future. The work will be included as part of the regular development and quality work.

      More information about the charter is available on the EURAXESS website, and through SUHF, which coordinates Swedish universities in their work with the charter and code.
