Research

SWPS University has joined the ranks of the elite group of research institutions granted the right to display the HR Excellence in Research logo. The European Commission awards the right to use the logo to institutions that have demonstrated their commitment to implement fair and transparent recruitment and appraisal procedures for researchers, such as: stability of employment, development opportunities as well as scientific and financial support for research projects.

University with HR Excellence in Research Logo

In Poland, only four universities, including SWPS University, have the right to display the HR Excellence in Research logo. The logo confirms that the institution has met the requirements of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. These documents outline the required standards of hiring procedures and working conditions. Both documents are key elements in the European Union's policy to promote scientific research and to make research an attractive career.

The institutions awarded the right to use the HR Excellence in Research logo are monitored regularly by the European Commission to ensure they continue to meet the required standards.
