REMO Webinar on the European Commission’s Recommendation for the new Charter for Researchers

In this webinar, Michele Rosa-Clot of the European Commission will present the main features of the recently published recommendation for the Charter for Researchers. This Charter replaces the Charter and Code that was first published in 2005. The Charter for Researchers aims to revitalize the European Research Area and to inspire European researchers, research employers, funders and policy makers. The Charter is a set of principles underpinning the development of attractive research careers to support excellence in research and innovation across Europe. The focus of the Charter for Researchers is the rights and responsibilities of researchers, employers, funders and policy makers consisting of 20 key principles. The ReMO COST Action is very pleased to read that among many changes, the new Charter explicitly prioritises the mental health and wellbeing of researchers: “Employers should provide a working environment that promotes the mental health and wellbeing of researchers, including appropriate procedures for preventing and tackling gender-based violence, including sexual harassment.”

Prof. Renaud Jolivet, will present his experience of representing researchers on the ERA Forum and how the European Commission integrates the views of stakeholders into its policy-making processes.

Dr Michele Rosa-Clot is Portfolio Manager of the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) at the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation of the European Commission. He had responsibility for managing the process that led to the new Charter for Researchers. He received his PhD in History and Political Science from the University of Pisa in 2007 and previously studied in Italy, the USA and the UK.

The event is finished.
