HR Excellence in Research 1 September 2020

The University of Cadiz has been awarded with the Human Resources Excellence in Research Award, being now 4 the universities in SEA-EU Alliance that have it. The University of Kiel, the University of Bretagne Occidentale, the University of Split and the University of Cadiz.

This award reflects the commitment our universities have to continuously improve their human resource policies in line with the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, as well as the commitment to achieve fair and transparent recruitment and appraisal procedures.


The ‘HR Strategy for Researchers’ supports research institutions and funding organizations in the implementation of the Charter & Code in their policies and practices.

The implementation of the Charter & Code principles by research institutions render them more attractive to researchers looking for a new employer or for a host for their research project.

The European Commission recognizes with the ‘HR Excellence in Research Award’ the institutions which make progress in aligning their human resources policies to the 40 principles of the Charter & Code, based on a customized action plan/HR strategy.
