HR Excellence in Research, a UK-wide process incorporating the QAA code of practice for research degree programmes and the concordat to support the career development of researchers, enables institutions to gain the European Commission’s ‘HR Excellence in Research’ badge. The award acknowledges alignment with the principles of the European charter for researchers and code of conduct for their recruitment.

St George’s, University of London was awarded the HR Excellence in Research Award in November 2013. We retained our HR Excellence in Research Award in June 2019, following a successful completion of a 4-year review. The retention demonstrates our long-term commitment to the career development and working conditions of researchers.

An internal assessment against our November 2013 action plan was carried out in October and November 2015. The original action plan has been updated and is accompanied by a summary progress report and a new action plan for November 2015 to November 2017.
