On 31 August 2018, the next meeting of The IUNG-PIB implementation working group for the HR Strategy for Researchers and the policy of open and transparent recruitment processes (OTM-R) took place.

The meeting discusses the results of the independent experts’ evaluation sent on 22 August 2018 by the European Commission (interim assessment), regarding the 24-month implementation period of The HR Strategy for researchers (HRS4R) by IUNG-PIB.

The team analysed the state of activities planned in HRS4R for next years, including those which could not be implemented so far due to the lack of dedicated funds in the Institute’s budget (implementation of the anti-plagiarism system). Also agreed was the activities allowing for the establishment of an internal audit group that would monitor the Working Group’s activities on an ongoing basis and their compliance with the provisions of the Charter, the Code and the OTM-R principles.
