Czech Technical University in Prague Received the HR Excellence in Research Award


The CTU in Prague received an award in the field of human resources from the European Commission. This award reflects the quality of the environment for researchers and guarantees its further development. The certificate can attract even more top scientists to the university and make acquisition of certain prestigious grants easier.

The condition for receiving the “HR Excellence in Research” award is successful implementation of the personnel strategy based on principles of the European Charter of Researchers and the Code of Behavior for Enrollment of Researchers. It is a recommendation of the European Commission that binds research institutes to create friendly work condition, to enable professional development and to use transparent procedures for enrollment of scientists.

The CTU in Prague signed up for these principles in 2017. During the following year, the university worked out an internal gap analysis that included an inquiry among the employees. Based on its results, an action plan was created that helps implementing specific measures in practice.
