Awards


  • HR Excellence in Research

    In 2016, the Silesian University of Technology has successfully gained the European Commission HR Excellence in Research logo. The award acknowledges University's alignment with vigorous and transparent implementation strategy for improving the career development of researchers.
    The ‘HR Strategy for Researchers’ supports research institutions and funding organizations during the process of adaptation of the Charter & Code to their policies and practices. The concrete implementation of the Charter & Code by research institutions renders them more attractive to researchers looking for a new employer or for a host for their research project. Funding organizations adapting the principles of the Charter & Code contribute to the attractiveness of their national research systems and the European Research Area in general. The ‘HR Excellence in Research’ award, attained after a thorough analysis of an institution carrying out HR policies, identifies the institutions and organizations as providers and supporters of a stimulating and favorable working environment for researchers.
