The European Charter & Code for Researchers
What is the European Charter for Researchers?
The European Charter for Researchers is a set of general principles and requirements which addresses the roles, responsibilities and entitlements of researchers and their employers or funding organisations. It aims to ensure that the relationship between these parties contributes to successful performance in the generation, transfer and sharing of knowledge, and to the career development of researchers.
What is the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers?
The Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers is a set of principles and requirements that aim to improve recruitment, to make selection procedures fairer and more transparent, and proposes different means of judging merit. For example, merit should not just be measured on researcher’s publications, but on a wider range of evaluation criteria, such as teaching, supervision, teamwork, knowledge transfer, management and public awareness activities.
