HR Development and Benefits Department

We are a department that was established in 2018 in connection with the need to implement a university-wide human resources development strategy. One of the reasons for its creation was the fact that we received the HR Excellence in Research Award, which the European Commission awards to research institutions implementing the HRS4R strategy. Our aim is to bring the university as close as possible to The European standards expressed in the European Charter for Researchers and The Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers and to provide the most pleasant work environment for all workers.
