HR Excellence in Research Award

The University gained the HR Excellence in Research Award from the European Commission in September 2011, and has retained the award since then.

About the HR Excellence in Research Award

The HR Excellence in Research Award reflects Bath’s commitment to:

The HR Excellence in Research award is a UK-wide process, incorporating the QAA Code of Practice for Research Degree Programmes and the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers. It enables institutions to gain the European Commission’s ‘HR excellence in Research’ badge, acknowledging alignment with the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for their Recruitment.

The responsibility for implementation of the strategy lies with the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research) and is managed by the Research Staff Working Group.
