HR Excellence in Research
BCMaterials is committed to open, transparent and merit-based recruitment of researchers
In 2000, the European Research Area (ERA) was established by the EU to strengthen the competitiveness of European institutions through closer research collaboration and better coordination of research infrastructure.
To contribute to the development of the European Research Area (ERA), The European Charter for Researchers and The European Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Charter and Code) were established by the European Commission in 2005. Charter and Code ensures open, transparent and merit-based recruitment of researchers, safeguard good working conditions and focuses on professional development for researchers at all stages of their careers. It also highlights the importance of recognizing and valuing research mobility, internationally, inter-sectorial and interdisciplinary. To implement Charter and Code at the individual institutions, the European commission has developed the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers HRS4R accreditation.
As part of its commitment to strengthen its competitiveness at the the European Research Area the Fundación BCMaterials endorsed in 14/07/2022 the European (Charter and Code) that sets out the rules and obligations of researchers, their employers and funders, as well as transparent and fair recruitment procedures.
In July 2022, Fundación BCMaterials presented its Application to obtain the "HR Excellence in Research" award, based on the implementation of the HRS4R action plan. The institution obtained the award in March 2023.
