The Charter and Code is an EU initiative designed to improve employment and working conditions for researchers. More specifically it is two documents describing improvements on recruitment, working conditions, career planning and mobility for researchers and their employers in Europe. On Thursday 7 July PRIO, as the first research institute in Norway, signed the declaration to follow the recommendations from the European Commission.
Now follows a period to implement the Charter and Code. See more on the EURAXESS pages, which are set up for this initiative, and on the Norwegian portal.
