HRS4R Label

HR Excellence in Research labeling

L'Institut Agro Rennes-Angers is committed to the European Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) and has been awarded the "HR Excellence in Research" label since February 2022.

Background and objectives

The European strategy for human resources for researchers (HRS4R) is a methodology which aims to implement the European Charter for researchers and the Code of conduct for the recruitment of researchers.

Published in 2005, these texts bring together 40 principles to promote the mobility and career of researchers and make the European Research Area (ERA) more attractive in terms of recruitment and working conditions for researchers around the world.

Respect for this approach is the subject of a "HR Excellence in Research" label granted by the European Commission to establishments engaged in this process.
