The European University of Tirana (EUT) endorsed in March 2015 the European Charter for Researchers and The Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers demonstrating its support and commitment to provide the most suitable research environment for its academic staff and researchers in line with European Commission standards.

Since then EUT has initiated the work towards receiving the HRS4R certification from the European Commission. Specifically, a working group has been formed, under the leadership of the vice rector for research, and a training session with the support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation has been undertaken.  Currently, EUT is reviewing its research related and hiring policies to bring them in full compliance with HRS4R standards. In addition, work has already begun on preparing the self-assessment questionnaire upon which the gap analysis and action plan will be formulated and submitted to the Commission.
