The award of the HR Excellence in Research seal on 14 September 2020 accredits the University of Navarra as an entity committed to quality in the management of human resources in research.
The University of Navarra is an institution that since its origins has always been committed to research, both in scientific and humanistic areas.
The continuous commitment to research and the desire to improve at all levels has recently led it to join the European initiatives called the "European Charter for Research" researcher and the "Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers".
Following the recommendations of the European Commission, in mid-2016 the University created a working group group with professionalsfrom different areas and responsibilities within research. Its work in the first phase consisted of an internal analysis based on the principles established in both the European Charter and the Code of Conduct, drawing up a diagnosis and defining an action plan that will soon be published.
The University of Navarra has decided to join these initiatives by means of a letter of support, convinced that its human capital is its most important asset, and that success depends to a large extent on the professional and personal satisfaction of our researchers, professors and support staff.
