Standing Working Group on Human Resources and Mobility
The Standing Working Group on Human Resources and Mobility of ERAC supports the implementation and the monitoring of progress of the EU2020 Flagship Initiative Innovation Union (IU), as well as the implementation of the European Research Area in the areas related to researchers’ careers and mobility at EU and national level (e.g. European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, Innovative Doctoral Training, Career Development, EURAXESS activities), as well as to the attractiveness of Europe to researchers in general.
Currently the SWG HRM is focusing on the following issues to developing the ERA:
i) follow-up on ERA priority 3: open labour market for researchers;
ii) open, transparent and merit based recruitment;
iii) Promotion and development of research careers and inter-sectoral mobility of researchers ; and
iv) synergies between ERA and EHEA, with the Open Science agenda and gender equality.
The members of the Standing Working Group will provide information on the overall plans devised at national level for the implementation of the ERA Roadmap. They will also report regularly on the actions undertaken or envisaged to execute these plans, as well as on developments regarding other on-going researcher-related activities.
The group is chaired by Cecilia CABELLO VALDÉS (ES).
