HR Excellence in Research
In 2014, the Lleida Biomedical Research Institute (IRBLleida) received the "HR Excellence in Research" award. This award and its logo reflect IRBLleida's commitment to the continous improvement of its human resources policies in line with the "European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers".
The European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers are addressed to researchers as well as to employers and funders in both the public and private sectors. They are key elements in the European Union's policy to make research an attractive career, which is a vital feature of its strategy to stimulate economic and employment growth.
IRBLleida's executive bodies approved the IRBLleida Strategic Plan for 2017-2020 in December 2016. One of the main challenges it seeks to address is to promote measures to improve transparency and merit in the recruitment and retention of talent, promoting the goals of the European Research Area.
The 2014-2016 IRBLleida Action Plan will align the institution's HR strategy with the European Charter and Code principles.
