The European Commission referred the decision to grant to the Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences the HR Excellence in Research award.

In April 2015 Director of the Henryk Niewodniczański Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences, prof. Marek Jeżabek signed the declaration of support for the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the recruitment of Researchers, thus the Institute of Nuclear Physics PAN joined the circle of the scientific-research and academic institutions recognizing the value of the rules described in those documents, hence committed itself to comply with them.

Granting the right to use „HR Excellence in Research” award is one of the activities of the European Commission, aiming at creating friendly environment for scientific work and transparent rules of recruitment.
