HR Excellence in Research#

Logo HR Excellence in Research

In December 2017, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft was awarded the Logo »HR Excellence in Research« from the European Commission in recognition of its outstanding Integrated Human Resources Management. Fraunhofer is one of first organizations for applied research in Germany to receive the Logo.

The European Commission adopted the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct  for the Recruitment of Researchers (in short: »EU-Charta & Code«)  in 2005 Charter & Code for Researchers | EURAXESS. The European Union considers the 40 principles of the »EU-Charta & Code« as a major factor for the attractiveness of scientific institutions as employers and for their commercial success. As Europe’s leading organization for applied research and as project partner many EU-projects, Fraunhofer fulfills these principles. By signing the European Charter and Code for Researchers in 2013, the Executive Board of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has clearly indicated to the outside world its commitment to this issue.
