The University of Huddersfield awarded the HR Excellence in Research award

The University of Huddersfield has secured the prestigious HR Excellence in Research award once more after their 2 year review. The review was carried out and the award given by the European Commission.

The Award demonstrates a university's commitment to improving the working conditions and career development for research staff, which will in turn improve the quantity, quality and impact of research for the benefit of UK society and the economy.

Ellen Pearce, Director of Vitae said:

'For many institutions, referencing their HR Excellence in Research Award in their REF submissions this week is an important component of demonstrating their commitment to researcher careers.

Our congratulations go to the latest institutions to have gained or retained the Award. At a time when European funding criteria are increasingly focused on demonstrable implementation of the European Charter and Code for Researchers principles, it is great to see so many UK organisations with the Award.'
