Last December 17th, 2014 IRTA sent several documents to the European Union in order to obtain the logo “HR Excellence in Research”. On January 21st, 2015 the European Union informed us we could use this logo because IRTA accomplishes the requirements to do so.
The logo “HR Excellence in Research” brings many advantages, among them the public recognition of our human resources management within the European Standards, a higher prestige at national and international level and an important improvement of IRTA’s image. It also implies that IRTA has to make an internal evaluation every two years -which means we have to follow up and review the Action Plan- and it also implies to be assessed by the European Union every four years through an external audit.
We are convinced that this experience, having achieved the seal of excellence, will allow us to enhance and deepen on our RDT human resources policies at the same time that it strengthens our Institute.
In this space we will be adding the information produced thanks to this European recognition.
