Our research aims to achieve a high level of societal and contemporary relevance, that stretches across many disciplines and areas. In order to offer an attractive research environment for external parties, among others to visiting researchers, post-docs and doctoral students, of which a number are affiliated with the Baltic Sea and Eastern Europe profile, we are working on standardisation and quality assurance of recruitment and employment of academic staff. The aim is to continually develop and deepen our contacts with the world around us.

During 2019, Södertörn University will apply to the European Commission for an approval of the implementation of ‘The European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.’ An approval allows one to use the award of ‘HR Excellence in Research’ and means that the university participates in the EU Commission's evaluation of the university's quality assurance system for an attractive, open and sustainable academic work environment.

The main reason to the Charter is to establish a strong European research area and to support and structure European research policies, and through the Charter to improve the conditions for free research, to promote the open labor market for researchers by increasing mobility, combating discrimination of all forms, promoting access and exchange of knowledge and promote continuous quality work at European universities.
