The University of Skövde is currently preparing itself according to the European Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R). The aim with this certification is to increase the University’s attractiveness as a stakeholder for internationally competitive research.
A gap analysis based on HSR4R is conducted during spring 2020. The work is coordinated by an internal working group (HR and AFSI) together with a steering committee (Styrgrupp). Focus groups will be formed with a group of active researchers on different career stages and from all research fields.
The gap analysis considers HR policies and regulations basesd on 40 principles divided into four groups:
- Ethical and professional aspects
- Working conditions and social security
We expect to finish the gap analysis and approve the Charter & Code in December 2020. Following this step, the University will introduce an action plan for implementation of the Charter & Code.
