UOC researchers come from around the world to carry out their projects in a diverse, flexible and international environment that nurtures interdisciplinarity, open knowledge and the transfer of knowledge to society.
They make the most of their research skills and academic experience to engage in various research lines, allowing them to collaborate in different projects and phases. They understand innovation as a part of their identity and something that is present in all their activities, projects and processes.
The UOC holds the Human Resources Excellence in Research award, a European quality seal recognizing the capacity to create a working environment that favours study and research while also boosting researchers' careers.
The UOC's selection processes are based on the OTM-R principles, in order to ensure that the best person for the job is selected.
OTM-R, which stands for Open, Transparent and Merit-based Recruitment, is one of the cornerstones of the European Charter for Researchers and, in particular, of the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, published by the European Commission (EC) in 2005.
