The ‘HR Strategy for Researchers’ supports research institutions and funding organizations in the implementation of the Charter & Code in their policies and practices. The concrete implementation of the Charter & Code by research institutions will render them more attractive to researchers looking for a new employer or for a host for their research project. Funding organisations implementing the Charter & Code principles will contribute to the attractiveness of their national research systems and to the attractiveness of the European Research Area more generally.
Two documents – the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers were published by the European Commission in 2005. They include recommendations for member states of the European Union. Their aim is to create an attractive and open labour market for researchers within the European Union.
The mission of Warsaw University of Life Sciences (SGGW) is to serve the economic and intellectual development of Polish society with special emphasis on rural areas, the food industry and the environment in a broad sense. The university is committed to maintaining the highest level of research, education and implementation of research results. The basis of identity and the success of the university are values such as professionalism, attention to quality, diligence and innovation.
Therefore, the signing of the declaration of support for the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, as one of the first twenty Polish universities, was both the means to fulfil the mission of the university, as well as the application of the recommendations of the European Commission. SGGW fully recognises the need to create attractive working conditions so that the scientists employed by the University are motivated to work actively both in the domestic and foreign research environment, and that the university is seen by potential international scientists as a strategic partner for cooperation and an attractive place to work. Thus, SGGW will be able to create strong new research teams and use modern research infrastructure to improve the quality of research and education, as well as increase international competitiveness. Thus, SGGW will accomplish its mission and implement its development strategy.
