Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) quality work

The HR Excellence in Research quality label is a recognition awarded by the European Commission for the development of researchers’ working conditions and careers. It is an indication that Tampere University fosters an inspiring, functional and equal work environment where recruitments are handled openly, professionally and transparently. The Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) is based on the values of the European Charter for Researchers. At Tampere University, this work is part of the university’s quality work which is continuously developing operations based on evaluations.

The predecessors of Tampere University – Tampere University of Technology and the University of Tampere – received the HR Excellence in Research awards already in 2014 and 2015. Tampere University was granted the award on 2021. The first Action Plan of the new university is largely based on the development targets that emerged during the merger process.
