Abstract

This report summarises the findings from a six country study (Cyprus, Finland, Germany, Italy, Romania and the United Kingdom)of the issues confronting early career researchers and how these can be improved through social partnership between higher education employers and trade unions. The project was funded by the European Commission Industrial Relations and Social Dialogue fund. Based on the research and the input of employer and union representatives, the UCEA researchers drafted recommendations for supporting ECRs in higher education in Europe, with a particular focus on employability, gender equality and mobility. The manner in which the recommendations for improvement are applicable in each Member State will however vary, considering the wide variation in higher education systems and the complexity of research and higher education policy and practice across Member States. The recommendations may be relevant at national, regional and institutional level depending on the Member State. European policy and action will also benefit from the consideration of these recommendations:
