European Charter for Researchers


The OTM-R package is a set of ready-made tools for implementation at universities and research institutions in order to provide an Open, Transparent and Merit-Based Recruitment (OTM-R) of researchers based on the candidate's qualifications.

OTM-R is one of the key aspects ensuring the availability and openness of the labour market for researchers in the European Union.

The OTM-R package includes:
- analysis of the benefits of open, transparent and merit-based recruitment of researchers based on the candidate's qualifications,
- principles and guidelines for the organization of the OTM-R process,
- a checklist for institutions,
- tips on how to improve the recruitment process,
- examples of good practices.

The implementation of the OTM-R principles may have significant impact on intensifying international cooperation in the field of scientific research, as well as increasing the effectiveness of the entire system of employing researchers.
