The European Commission is organising a series of regional workshops in 2017 with key stakeholders on how to attract the most talented researchers.
The purpose of the events is to inform “newcomers” (research performing institutions and research funders) on the principles of Charter and Code and their implementation in the research institution via a step-wise procedure called the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers.
The workshops address HR Directors and HR Managers in research performing and research funding institutions from the Western Balkans, the Baltic countries and Bulgaria and Romania. They also address high-level representatives of these countries' universities, research centres as well as beneficiaries and potential applicants of H2020 contracts/projects.
The initiative is a part of the Commission’s work on “Closing the ERA divide”. More information, including how to register, can be found on the event website.
