In 2005, the European Commission issued the European Charter for Researchers and a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. These two documents, addressed to researchers as well as research employers and funders in both the public and private sectors, are key elements in the EU's policy to boost researchers' careers.

In December 2017, the ICP endorsed the 40 principles of the 'European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers' and it is committed to implement a new Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) according to this Charter and Code.

From January to October 2017, the ICP HRS4R Implementation Committee and Working Group performed an internal Gap Analysis and planned 25 initiatives to improve our human resources policies. These initiatives were described in the ICP Action Plan that was presented to the European Comission in November 2017.

The HR Excellence in Research was granted to the ICP in March 2018.
