The AGH University proceeds to the activities for implementing the Charter and the Code. This is a continuous process which requires regular evaluation and improvement of university activities.

The European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers were published by the European Commission in 2005. These are some of the most important documents in European politics for the increase in the attractiveness of the working conditions and the career development of researchers in Europe. They are addressed at the researchers, employers, and entities financing research, in the public and private sectors. 

The institutions which implement the Charter and the Code and align their own policies to the provisions of both documents receive the „HR Excellence in Research” award from the European Commission. The implementation of the principles of the Charter and the Code is voluntary.
