Past activities

The European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers

The European Charter for Researchers and the associated Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers constitute the main policy document of the European Union on the topic of the management of Human Resources in Science and Research. It has been adopted in the form of a Recommendation by the European Commission on 11 March 2005, and endorsed by the Council of Ministers in the same year. It is addressed not only to Member States, but to all those institutions where researchers are employed, to funding bodies of research activities, and to researchers themselves. Its elaboration has been undertaken by way of a dialogue among a wide list of stakeholders, under the political responsibility of the EU institutions.
