HR Excellence in Research

European recognition of INRAE's HR policy

In the highly competitive context of global research, the construction of a European Research Area equipped with efficient mechanisms at the service of society, enabling innovation and supporting economic activity, is essential. Echoing this challenge, the European Commission has initiated the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) initiative in order to make research professions more visible and facilitate researcher employability. The aim is to increase the attractiveness of careers in research, guarantee equal access to employment, and facilitate geographical and cross-sector mobility.

This process was launched at INRAE in 2006 and the Institute has committed itself to transparency in its HR priorities, particularly in terms of the openness of its recruitment and career development policy, social policy and research environment. In 2010, this commitment led to the European Commission’s recognition of INRAE HR policy and HR Excellence in Research certification for the Institute.

European authorities carry out regular evaluations to ensure that action is ongoing. Certification is only renewed on the basis of an ongoing well-structured and voluntary dynamic. By setting out its HR objectives here and reporting on their achievement, INRAE illustrates its commitment to a process of continuous improvement of its human resources policy, which is monitored by the Human Resources division (HRD).
