HR Excellence in Research Application

Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) was granted the prestigious EURAXESS Excellence in Research award in February 2017 in recognition of our commitment to implementing the principles of European Charter & Code for Researchers.  Integral to the process was the development, publication and implementation of a comprehensive CIT HRS4R Strategy and Action Plan. Institutions in receipt of the EURAXESS award have 24 months to begin implementing the actions outlined in their initial Strategy and Action Plan and to submit an Internal Interim Assessment Review Report on their progress to the European Commission (EC).


CIT has now commenced the Internal Interim Assessment phase and has updated its initial HRS4R Strategy and Action Plan to reflect both progress made to date and to confirm future commitments. 


The original and Updated Strategy and Action Plans are available below. The Institute’s OTM-R Policy is also available below.
