The commitment was signed by the Vice-Chancellor and initiated a process at the UIB with a view to being awarded the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers - HRS4R. Following on from recommendations issued by the Commission, the UIB set up a Working Group (WG) and a Steering Committee (SC) to work on the implementation of the system.

The UIB sent all the documentation required to pass the first HRS4R implementation stage on 14th November 2019. These documents are as follows:

  • GAP analysis: this shows the UIB’s implementation level of the 40 C&C principles. The university’s research community participated in this analysis alongside the WG and the SC
  • OTM-R checklist: this shows the implementation level of Open, Transparent and Merit-based Recruitment for researchers at the UIB
  • Action Plan: after detecting certain gaps, the UIB has put forward a 24-month action plan in order to fill in these missing pieces as best as possible. After the action plan is implemented, a new report will be sent to Commission Services (Interim Assessment).
