Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R)

INESAN is an evolving research organization with the potential to rank among influential research subjects in the field of social sciences, not only in the Czech Republic, but also abroad. It fully endorses the ideas of HRS4R. The Processing processing of the gender audit (autumn 2017) and following support of the organizational evolution of the INESAN project (supported from August 2018 from OPE) eased the decision of management to start the process of obtaining an HR Award.

As part of INESAN’s development, we have adopted the European Charter for Researchers and has have begun the process of acquiring the HR Award. The first step was to send a request for involvement in the organization’s evaluation process to receive a personnel award . In July 2018, the European Commission accepted INESAN’s request and set a 12-month deadline for meeting the basic conditions for obtaining the HR Award. Now our organization as is a holder of the HR Excellence in research Research award and we have begun initiated the implementation phase of the HRS4R by setting out an conducting Aaction Plan plan and GAP analysis comparing the current processes with the principles set out in the Charter and Code.
