Open Transparent and Merit Based Recruitment (OTM-R)
The University of Limerick is committed to fully implementing the EU recommendations on Open, Transparent and Merit-based Recruitment practices for researchers (OTM-R), in conjunction with the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, in our HR Strategy for Researchers.
By ensuring that the best person for the job is recruited, open, transparent and merit-based recruitment of researchers improves the effectiveness of national research systems, guarantees equality, especially for under-represented groups, and boosts transnational and international co-operation. This in turn promotes optimal circulation of scientific knowledge. Individual researchers, employers, funding bodies, and ultimately the whole European Research Area (ERA), benefit from OTM-R.
