Open, transparent recruitment based on the merits of the research staff (OTM-R)

What is it?

The “OTM-R Package” is a package of practical and useful tools to implement open recruitment practices that are transparent and meritocratic, in Research and Development Organisations.

It includes:

The foundations: why is OMT-R essential?

The principles and the guide: what would a good OTM-R system involve?

A list for self-assessment: how are current practices measured?

The toolbox: a step by step guide to improve OTM-R practices.

Examples of good practices.

 Why is it necessary?

OTMOTM-R ensures that the best person is recruited for the job, it guarantees equal opportunities and access for everyone, facilitates international development (cooperation, competitivity, mobility) and ensure that professional opportunities in research are more attractive.
