European Charter and Code for Researchers

At the beginning of 2014, the University of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova (UnASM) has launched the process of implementation of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers principles, based on the decision of the University Senate. Accordingly, on February 6, 2014, the rector of the University of the Academy of Sciences, acad. Maria DUCA, signed the Declaration of Commitment to the European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for the Recruitment Researchers. By endorsing Charter&Code, UnASM, recognizes the value of its principles and willingly commits itself to applying for them.

The European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers were adopted by the European Commission in March 2005. These documents are key elements in the EU`s policy to make research an attractive career and improve employment and working conditions for researchers and, as such, are vital features of the EU strategy to stimulate employment and economic growth.
The 40 principles of  “Charter & Code” address both researchers and their employers. They serve as a framework for comprehensive career management and transparent recruitment and appraisal procedures and are grouped in 4 areas:

  1. Ethical and professional aspects;
  2. Recruitment;
  3. Working conditions & social security;
  4. Training.

 

The gap analysis carried out by the working group consisted in the analysis of the current national legislation and regulations of the UnASM relating to the principles of Charter and Code. Based on this comprehensive analysis it was determined whether a new action plan was needed.

According to the Summary of the Internal Analysis and Action Plan elaborated by UnASM in 2014, the progress of the Action Plan was reviewed and discussed at the University's Senate session each six months by the Monitoring Committee chaired by the Rector.
