The Institut Pasteur’s commitment
In August 2020, the Institut Pasteur officially embarked on a Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) accreditation process, which is covered by Priority 3 of our 2019-2023 strategic plan: "Work more effectively together and empower each individual so as to create an attractive, collaborative working environment."
Following a year’s collaborative work, it has been possible to review practices at the Institut Pasteur and draw up an action plan to ensure closer alignment with European Commission recommendations.
In December 2021, the Institut Pasteur retained the HR Excellence in Research Award and initiated the first implementation phase of the action plan which focuses on the following five key areas:
- Research ethics
- Interactions between science and society
- Recruitment and employability
- Working conditions
- Research management and training
This first implementation phase of the action plan will be evaluated by the European Commission in 2023.
What is HR Excellence in Research award ?
The European Human Resources Strategy for Researchers is part of a process aimed at continually improving scientists’ working and recruitment conditions and seeks to promote mobility and careers for scientists.
Through its commitment to adopting the principles of the Charter and Code, the Institut Pasteur is fully supporting efforts to build a European Research Area (ERA), which aims to establish a coherent, concerted European research policy based on scientific excellence, competitiveness, innovation and cooperation.
