Human Resources Strategy Uniud
In July 2005 the Italian Universities gathered together by the Conference of Italian Universities Rectors (CRUI) at Camerino undertake to adopt the values and apply the general principles contained in the Recommendation of the European Commission of March 11, 2005.
In 2008 the University of Udine, alongside other seven universities, starts the process of adopting and applying the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Charter & Code) in the internal regulations and in the daily life of the University.
In 2011 the University submits to the approval of the European Commission (EC) a first proposal of Strategy for Human Resources (HRS) and Action Plan in line with the principles of the Charter and Code. Unfortunately the experts make a negative assessment of the procedures and strategies proposed, primarily because the young researchers, both permanent and temporary, principle beneficiaries of the process not are involved.
Nevertheless, throughout the period 2011/2015, kept account the absence of any strong pressure from the central government to activate the principles of the Charter & Code and the internal changings political and administrative governance, the University of Udine continues to follow chosen path with the intention of adopting the requirements of the C&C in their entirety.
Also in consideration of the feedback from the questionnaire (Internal Gap Analysis 2012) administered to all permanent and temporary employees who carry out research activities at the University, therefore they are initiated actions to improve both the work environment that the individual awareness of the specific professional skills, providing new services, benefits, training opportunities and participation in academic life.
In May 2014 is established and is immediately operational the Working Group Charter & Code (WG).
In October 2015 a new proposal of the Human Resources Strategy and the Action Plan for implementing the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers is sent to the EC (Euraxess Rights Team). The document, prepared by the WG, had been previously shared with all offices of the University and approved by the Academic Senate.
In January 2016 (Consensus January 7, 2016) the EC assessors approve the proposal with reserve of further integrations. The Strategy for Human Resources and the Actions Plan of the University of Udine is therefore updated in light of the comments made by the experts. The documentation is transmitted to the EC (Euraxess Rights Team) on May 13, 2016.
May 20, 2016 the University of Udine officially obtains the HR Excellence in Research Award from the European Commission.
