The European Commission’s Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R)

Implemented throughout the European Research Area, this initiative invites the participation of leading research centres, including the Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology (VHIO), to wholeheartedly and collectively promote the training, career development and mobility of scientists across Europe.

VHIO is therefore committed to participating in this important project – not only to strengthen its own policies, but also to contribute to spurring research of excellence throughout Europe.

VHIO welcomes and fully supports the general values and principles as stated in the European Charter and Code.

By adhering to the Charter and Code, VHIO recognizes the importance of providing an adequate framework, within which its researchers can further their careers to a high-quality standard, contributing to the development and consolidation of the European Research Area.

In April 2018, VHIO’s comprehensive analysis and Action Plan was officially approved by HRS4R assessors and our Institute was granted permission to use the HR Excellence in Research award logo as a sign of its stimulating and favourable work environment.
