HR Excellence in Research - development at TUT

Mikko Lauri and Alejandro Rivero were among the first to take part in the career planning groups for doctoral students at TUT in spring 2015. The groups help students envision their future careers by reflecting, among others, on their level of self-awareness, areas of expertise and motivation. Career planning groups support the professional development of researchers at TUT.

The European Commission awarded Tampere University of Technology the right to use the HR Excellence in Research logo in spring 2014. As a result of receiving the recognition, TUT became one in a long line of 200 European universities and research institutions that are committed to developing their organizations in compliance with The European Charter for Researchers and The Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The aim is to provide good working conditions and career development opportunities for research staff and ensure that Europe is an attractive destination for researchers from all over the world.

The University’s action plan for implementing the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) is available at
