The label represents confirmation that the working environment at the university is attractive for young researchers and potential international applicants. By obtaining the label our university became one of the attractive employers in the European research area.
Comenius University began the process of qualifying for the label in 2021 when it signed up to two fundamental documents in which the European Commission defines the standards for the employment of researchers in research institutions. They are the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. By adopting the principles outlined in these documents, Comenius University undertook to implement a Human Resources Strategy for Researchers. The initiative received support from the Ministry of Education through the ‘HRS4RUK’ development project.
European Commission reserves the right to take away the label and consequently the university needs to monitor and evaluate its HR management system continuously.
