The Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R)

HR Excellence in Research

Örebro University has been granted the HR award HR Excellence in Research as one of the first universities in Sweden.

The HR award was granted in 2018 and Örebro University has entered the implementation phase which involves revising the action plan and has been undertaking a self-assessment of how well the university complies with the action plan submitted in 2018. A revised action plan was submitted on 18 December 2020 and was reviewed by an external expert appointed by the European Commission. The action plan was approved and given positive response from the assessor. Örebro University is now preparing to enter the next phase, which is the award renewal phase, and a site visit from the European Commission assessors in spring 2024.

This award indicates that Örebro University is an employer with a stimulating and benevolent working environment. The award also indicates the University's commitment to fair and transparent recruitment and assessment procedures in employment and to the career development of researchers.

All documents relating to the HR Excellence in Research are to be found on this website, under “Implementation of the Charter and Code”. 

Örebro University is listed in the EURAXESS website under the header of 'HR Acknowledged Institutions' where the HR awarded institutions are regrouped per country.
