A Kutatók Európai Chartája és Kódexe

Az Európai Bizottság 2005-ben elfogadta a Kutatók Európai Chartáját  és a Kutatók Felvételi Eljárásának Magatartási Kódexét. Ez a két dokumentum, amely kutatóknak, kutatókat foglalkoztatóknak és támogatóknak egyaránt szól, a köz-és magánszektorban is, kulcsfontosságú elemei a Európai Unió kutatói karrer fellendítésére irányuló politikájának.


1251 organisations have endorsed the Charter & Code principles.

Research careers in Europe are fragmented at local, regional, national or sectoral level, not allowing Europe to make the most of its scientific potential. The Charter and Code ensures researchers can enjoy the same rights and obligations in any European country.

Please note that as of 15 May 2018, institutions that are willing to endorse the Charter and Code are initiating the application for the "HR Excellence in Research Award", which implies a long-term commitment.

These principles and requirements are complementary to those outlined in the European Charter for Researchers. Institutions and employers adhering to the Code of Conduct will openly demonstrate their commitment to act in a responsible and respectable way and to provide fair framework conditions to researchers, with a clear intention to contribute to the advancement of the European Research Area.
