Our university has decided to join the 40 principles of the "European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers" as well as other Czech and European universities.

The principles enshrined in the Charter and the Code form the basis of the so-called "HRS4R" - "Human Resources Management Strategy for Science".

It is the sign of professional development support and effort for continuous improvement in this field; it also brings bonuses in grant obtaining and increase prestige and attractiveness at the international level with a better position in addressing researchers all over the world.
