Research Working Environment

A favourable working environment means being recognised and treated as a professional researcher. Enjoying the same rights and obligations in any country in the European Union is what researchers expect. However, research careers in Europe are fragmented at local, regional, national or sectoral level, not allowing Europe to make the most of its scientific potential. To overcome this situation, the European Commission has several initiatives in place to make research careers in Europe more attractive: discover them and let your colleagues and friends know about them!

In 2005, the European Commission adopted a European Charter for Researchers and a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. These two documents, addressed to researchers as well as employers and funders in both the public and private sectors, are key elements in the European Commission Union's policy to make research an attractive career. Enjoying the same rights and obligations in any country in the European Union is what researchers expect, and what the European Union is working towards.

CHARTER & CODE FOR RESEARCHERS

Many European institutions are in the process of developing a special Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) to implement the Charter and Code. When job-hunting, look for the ‘HR Excellence in Research’ award – it means an employer has put a strategy in place to provide an attractive working environment.

HRS4R

Researchers are a highly skilled and mobile part of the workforce. However, moving from one country to another can cause complications in terms of the transfer of social security and pension rights. There is no clear and transparent information available about these rights at European level. The European Commission has been working to close this gap and has piloted a project on a pan-European pension scheme for researchers: RESAVER. This will enable mobile and non-mobile employees to remain affiliated to the same pension scheme when moving between different countries and changing jobs.

See the RESAVER web-site for more information.

The mobility of researchers is a driver of excellence in research. However, researchers face many difficulties in preserving their supplementary pension benefits when moving between different countries. To overcome this problem, the European Commission is supporting a consortium of employers in creating a single European pension arrangement, RESAVER, which will offer a defined contribution plan, tailor-made for research organisations and their employees.
