The Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU) has endorsed the principles enshrined in the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers in 2017. The aim is to obtain the HR Excellence in Research Award (HR Award), awarded by the European Commission to research institutions that implement The Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) based on above principles.
