In 2017, after conducting an external assessment, the European Commission awarded the H. Niewodniczański Institute of Nuclear Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences, the prestigious distinction “HR Excellence in Research”. The distinction was granted in recognition of implementing the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers in the IFJ PAN recruitment policy.
