Euraxess – Charter and Code
Oslo and Akershus University College welcomes and supports the Recommendation of the European Commission onThe European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Charter & Code).
By endorsing the Charter & Code, Oslo and Akershus University College (HiOA) recognizes the value of its principles and voluntarily commits itself to applying them.
The principles are in line with our goals to increase our attractiveness to researchers by offering them favourable working environments and to increase international mobility. The measures proposed are viewed in connection with both HiOA’s R&D strategy and personnel policy.
HiOA’s aim to gain university status implies an increased focus on research, which in turns entails a greater need for international mobility. The guiding principles in HiOA’s university strategy will therefore serve as the basis for the efforts related to action plans and measures.
Oslo and Akershus University College has performed a Charter & Code Internal Analysis. On the basis of the analysis we have developed an Action Plan. Goals in the action plan include:
- Further develop the policy on intellectual property rights (IPR)
- Draw up a new, revised strategic plan for gender equality
- Better information on HiOA’s webpages in English about research, appointments and recruitment
- Work to ensure that stays abroad, when relevant for the quality of education and research, is established as a well-defined criterion in the wage policy.
The Action plan will be implemented by the Department of Human Resources in collaboration with the Research and Development Administration. THe implementation will be monitored by a group comprising Nina Leira, Lise Bakke Brøndbo, Vibeke Moe and Anne Ullmann according to the work schedule below.
