Steering Committee

The Steering Committee is composed of the UPPA's governance actors, namely the President and the Director General of Services who oversee the institution's overall strategy. It was also important to involve our statutory Vice Presidents and our Delegate VPs of Research, Teaching, Operations, Human Resources, Research Partnerships and Transfer of Technologies, and International Relations as key players in the implementation of this strategy, one of the axes of which is the HRS4R accreditation. The Directors of the three Colleges participated in the Committee to relay the approach and validate its feasibility within their respective entities. As our institution has received the I-SITE accreditation with its flagship project E2S UPPA, the Executive Director of the project brought his support to the HRS4R accreditation process and ensured the coherence of the two processes. All of these actors belong to the university’s corps of Teacher-Researchers.

Given the nature of the project, the participation of representatives of the UPPA’s administrations was invaluable: the Directors of Human Resources, of Research and Valorization, and of Operations, Support and Ongoing Improvement all contributed their technical expertise.

The Steering Committee composed of the aforementioned actors is in charge of defining the broad outlines of the HRS4R project methodology. It then studies and validates each step of the HRS4R project led by the Operational Committee and the Contributors who are representative of the research community at large.
