HR Excellence in Research Application

In November 2016 CIT submitted an application to the European Commission to receive the HR Excellence in Research Logo in recognition of our commitment in implementing the principles of European Charter & Code for Researchers.  The Charter and Code includes 40 principles and requirements which specifies the roles, responsibilities and entitlements of researchers as well as of employers and/or funders of researchers. 


CIT has participated in the HR Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) and produced a Gap Analysis of the Institute’s policies and practices against the principles of the Charter & Code and the development of an action plan to identify areas for improvements.


Following the Gap Analysis, a Strategy and Action Plan has been completed, identifying a number of key areas for change and further development, and submitted alongside the Gap Analysis.


We are presently awaiting the outcome of the review process. The award of the HR Excellence in Research logo will support our researchers in their proposals to attract international funding and increase the international profile of the Institute.
