By Sylvie Arroyo, Continuous Improvement and Quality Project Manager and Claire Harai, International Welcome Desk Manager - Pau

The University of Pau and the Pays de l'Adour fully adheres to the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, whose main themes are Ethical and professional aspects, Recruitment and selection, Working conditions, Training and development. 

In November 2020, the UPPA received the Human Resources Excellence in Research (HREIR) Award, recognizing its commitment to developing a Human Resources Strategy for Research (HRS4R) policy, harmonizing researchers' recruitment procedures and promoting the continuous improvement of its day-to-day practices.

This is all the more timely as the university is already involved in the UNITA alliance, which requires a common and shared framework for all partners in UNITA and its constellation.

The university is now in the 2-year Interim Assessment phase. As part of this process, the initial Action Plan has been reviewed and updated and the Internal Review was submitted to the European Commission on October 28, 2022.

The Initial Action Plan laid out 35 actions to be carried out during the period of 2020-2025.

Of these 35 actions :

  • 17 have been completed
  • 13 are in progress
  • 4 have been extended
  • 1 action is new (has been reformulated)
