Action Plan for the HRS4R - SUT.pdf
The Silesian University of Technology supports the initiative of the European Commission and the recommendations given in the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.
SUT commits itself to develop and improve its internal human resources policy in accordance with the principles stated in the Charter and the Code, and to guarantee transparency and accessibility in the whole process of researchers recruitment.
By implementing the Charter and the Code principles, SUT intends to contribute to the realization of an open, transparent and attractive European Labour market for researchers.
In April 2015, Silesian University of Technology declared its commitment to the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the recruitment of researchers.
In spring 2016, appointed working group assessed the 40 points and undertook a preliminary gap analysis using the template for internal analysis provided by the European Commission in connection with the institutional HR strategy project.
After completing the internal analysis and making the final text of the outcome of the survey, the working group concluded that the SUT's practice is already mostly in accordance with the general principles of the Charter and Code. At the same time, it concluded that in some areas there is still room for improvement. Based on the internal analysis and outcome of the survey, the same group made this Human Resources Strategy for Researchers – Action plan that contains priority areas in which SUT has to make additional effort in implementation of the principles from C&C.
SUT’s Action Plan was adopted by consensus in April 2016 by the members of the working group and was approved by the Rector in May. The strategic lines of the action are outlined below:
1. Implementation of a regulation regarding training on Intellectual Property Rights
