Labellisation HRS4R

The HRS4R Certification

With the HRS4R certification, Sorbonne University is committed to its research staff

In order to build and reinforce the European Research Area, the European Union is deploying a policy to promote the profession of research, with the goal, among other things, of encouraging mobility and career opportunities.

On July 7, 2021, Sorbonne University received the European Charter for Researchers and a Code of Conduct for Recruitment HRS4R certification, which recognizes its commitment to the principles of the European Charter for Researchers, the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers and its support for open, transparent and merit-based recruitment.

The HRS4R Award

The Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) certification, awarded by the European Commission, is designed to support institutions and organizations working in the field of research. Institutional practices will improve in terms of working conditions, recruitment and ethics, by adopting the 40 principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.
These objectives are fundamentally in line with Sorbonne University policy of enhancing the ability of the institution to attract researchers and increase its international visibility as well as its active participation in the European Research Area. Sorbonne University therefore committed to the certification process as of 2020 and became HRS4R compliant on July 7, 2021.

This certification is a guarantee the quality of the employment at the university for the research professionals on the European continent. It guarantees equal treatment in the various institutions and facilitates access to European research funds. These objectives are fully aligned with Sorbonne University policy in terms of support of research and its actors.

Sorbonne University's commitment

The process of obtaining the label began with a self-evaluation of practices at Sorbonne University, encompassing all research personnel (doctoral researchers, doctoral researchers, post-doctoral researchers, teacher-researchers). It focused on four main areas: human resources, working conditions, professional training and ethics.

On this basis, Sorbonne University has committed to a 2021-2023 action plan to improve its practices in each of the four areas. This action plan is in response to a survey of 400 researchers of all types: doctoral students, post-doctoral students, associate professors and university professors. With 43% of complete responses, the answers obtained are representative of the diversity of our community.

In 2023, a review and an update of the action plan will be carried out in consultation with the university's research staff community.

Chiffres-clés
Welcome to Sorbonne University's Faculty of Science & Engineering

A unique combination of courses and expertise

Our international study programmes are organised according to the major disciplinary areas of the faculty. They represent the graduate study programmes that are not strictly conducted in French or that could be suitable (in part) for non French-speaking students. They also reflect part of the diversity of the disciplines involved and the bi- and inter-disciplinary aspects of many of the courses we offer.

 

Research & Innovation

We rely on disciplinary skills and on interdisciplinary approaches to renew concepts, methods and research subjects and to focus on some of the crucial issues faced by our societies: transformations affecting the very construction of knowledge (data, AI), the treatment of complex objects (the environment, marine and ocean sciences, cultural heritage) or our contributions to addressing societal challenges (climate change, healthcare).

Study at
The Faculty of Science & Engineering

Our campuses offer different and unique experiences to our students, visitors and staff. Resources and support services are also available to ensure an equal chance at success to all.

Campus Life

In addition to the cultural activities and events organised throughout the year by our clubs and societies, the Parismus society organises numerous events, evenings and cultural visits that will help you discover France and its parisian life.
