The European Commission is committed to increasing the attractiveness of research careers in Europe and to improving employment and working conditions for researchers. Further work is necessary to implement a sound Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R), based upon the uptake of the Charter and Code concept. HR managers from research institutions and funding organisations will come together to share their experiences and best practices when implementing the HRS4R in their institutions for the benefit of the researchers. Participants will also share creative and innovative, and yet feasible, ideas on the key elements needed to improve the current HRS4R implementation procedure.

The NOPOOR project will be evaluated at mid-term by the European Commission (DG RTD) on 20th November 2014. The Consortium will have to emphasise the extent to which the work done tends towards achieving the objectives written in the DoW (description of work). With this occasion, several scientific programmes will be presented to the audience, in order to expose the current state of the research.
The NOPOOR project addresses poverty through new lens and multiple angles. Seven main topics discuss the multidimensionality of poverty: concepts and measurement, international aid, impact of globalisation, labour market and informal sector, education and social policies, role of the state and scenarios for the future. After more than two years, the first results are now being released, mostly represented by study cases. Some of the studies have been presented during the Dakar policy seminar in June 2014 which involved several West African policy makers. Furthermore, individual papers were presented during various seminars and were also submitted to international journals.
