With this Council Recommendation and the new Charter for Researchers annexed to it, researchers at all career stages can expect better working conditions, equality and inclusiveness, a limited use of fixed-term contracts, skills allowing seamless mobility between sectors and therefore more career opportunities, a reformed assessment system that takes into consideration the real impact of their activities, practices and outputs, rather than just publications, and much more. The Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) will from now on be based on the new Charter for Researchers.

Recommendation including the Code in English  Council Recommendation states that the Charter and Code for Researchers are revised to respond to new realities and current challenges facing researchers and institutions, including better integration of gender balance, gender equality and inclusiveness, with the inclusion of measures aimed at a research environment free from gender-based violence, as well as open science practices. The new version of the Charter is simplified to facilitate its implementation and to encourage its use outside the academic sector.
