Hasselt University has a long tradition of paying attention to research careers. In 2007 the university was one of the first Flemish universities to subscribe the Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers from the European Commission. On 1 April 2010, the Hasselt University Board of Deans expressed its wish to achieve the recognition of HR Excellence in Research from the European Commission. As first of all Flemish universities, Hasselt University obtained this recognition in 2011.
To renew our HR Strategy for Researchers label, the HR Department and the Research Coordination Office have organised an institution-wide stakeholders meeting on 27 September 2017. Researchers of all stadia of the research career were invited to conduct a gap analysis and formulate their advice regarding a new action plan. When this action plan has been submitted and approved by the European Commission, you will find this new action plan on this web page.
