In November 2013 the European Commission awarded Politecnico di Torino with the label "HR Excellence in Research", recognizing the commitment in implementing the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.

This award follows an accurate process of internal gap analysis about the adoption of the principles of the Charter and the preparation of a multiannual Action Plan aimed at making the Chart and the Code more effective and creating a dynamic and high quality academic environment  for researchers from all over the world.

On 14 April 2021, Politecnico di Torino received the site visit from three experts sent by the European Commission, who confirmed the HR Excellence in Research Award, giving a very positive assessment: “The whole approach of PoliTO towards HRS4R is admirable. Any issues which have been praised during this assessment are actually models of good practice”.

The Human Resources Strategy for Researcers - HRS4R is embedded into the new POLITO4IMPACT Strategic Plan (2018-2024) and the representatives of the academic community and the administrative staff are involved in its implementation.  

In compliance with the HRS4R requirements, Politecnico di Torino carried out the self-assessment on the OTM-R checklist (published in the box on the right) and published the OTM-R policy, which is available together with information on recruitment and selection practices on the PoliTO CAREERS website.
