The HR4R strategy and the HR Excellence in Research distinction (the so-called HR Logo) are the hallmarks of scientific institutions that care for their researchers, providing them with the best working and development conditions in the European Union.

The high standard of activities undertaken by Gdańsk University of Technology in this area was appreciated by the European Commission on 18 July 2017, when we were granted the right to use the HR distinction.

The overriding goal of the activities under the HR4R Strategy is to ensure optimal and stable employment conditions, conducive to the development of researchers and science at Gdańsk Tech. This document is based on the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers as well as the university's own good management practices.

The HR4R strategy is important to us due to the implemented – sometimes small – initiatives, commitment and efforts of hundreds of academic and administrative staff and doctoral students. For many years, we have been identifying barriers that hinder the functioning, work and development at our university, we define our needs to make our work better and more efficient, we determine and implement tasks that improve the conditions of work and cooperation.
