Project summary

Re@WBC plans to improve institutional HR policies and practices through a series of bylaw changes that will prepare researchers for the labour market and society by facilitating their career development. Further, it will enhance their level of competences through a series of practical trainings in transversal and transferable skills. Thus it will harmonize the management of university research potentials and foster regional cooperation in the WBC region converging with EU developments in HE.

Objectives

The main objective of the proposed project is to contribute to enhanced management of human research potential at WBC region universities in line with national and EU strategies for researchers to remedy the issues mentioned above. Besides day-by-day visible outcomes (reports, analyses, trainings, action plans, bylaws etc.), more prominent outputs showing to what extent the project objectives are met will be:

- Mentoring System for junior professors implemented,

- HRS4R strategy adopted by all WBC partner universities,

- System of Awards created for research boosting,

- Guidebook for Young Researchers published.

Finally, since the background for the foreseen activities is provided by the EU standards and specifically European Charter and Code, it is expected that all partner universities will be awarded with HR Excellence in Research label by the  European Commission as key evidence that the WBC region institutional strategies for HR management reached the highest standards.
