Our Methodology of Professional Careers for Researchers

Our Methodology of Professional Careers for Researchers

Our methodology makes a coherent, clear and objective system of professional careers available to researchers. This facilitates their training and development in the field of applied research. With this system, we make the researcher take responsibility for their career, showing them what their expertise is by means of a knowledge map and indicating in which areas they should focus in accordance with Vicomtech’s professional career route map. By means of this system, we locate people at the centre of the organisation and we guide them in the achievement of the overall objectives laid out in the strategic plan.

The basis of this professional careers system lies in the methodology we have developed and implemented, and which has been validated at international level in top-level scientific publications (Q1).


HR Excellence in Research

We have the European Commission recognition HR Excellence in Research which vouches for our commitment to open, transparent recruitment based on researchers’ merits (OTM-R: Open, Transparent and Merit-based Recruitment of Researchers).

The European Commission has developed the European Researchers’ Statutes and the Code of Conduct for Recruiting Researchers and these have become key elements in European Union policy, making research an attractive career and stimulating economic growth and employment in Europe. Open, transparent and merit-based recruitment  is one of the cornerstones of the European Researchers’ Statutes and the Code of Conduct for their recruitment.
The aim is to ensure a contribution to the effective generation, transfer and shared use of knowledge, as well as the professional development of researchers from the initial stages.
Also, the Code of Conduct is used for the recruitment of researchers through fair and transparent selection processes. 
OTM-R makes researcher careers more attractive, ensure equal opportunities for all candidates and facilitates mobility. As a whole, it can contribute to the increase in the effectiveness of research investment costs.


ISO 27001

Information Management and Security

At Vicomtech we have been committed for years to excellence in management including asset management as well as its comprehensive security. Risk-based thinking that projects us towards a clear diagnosis of our information assets, helps us to implement controls and establish procedures for handling data and information in general.

The awareness of all the people in Vicomtech and the good work in this area have recently allowed us to obtain the UNE-EN-ISO 27001 certificate, the standard for Information Security Management Systems.

Thanks to this certificate, which becomes even more relevant as digitization advances in all areas and sectors, we have the guarantees that we effectively manage the security of the information and assure its confidentiality, integrity and availability.

ISO 14001


Environmental Management Systems
We have a state-of-the-art methodology to identify and assess environmental aspects of the centre’s intangible assets. All the aspects which could affect the environment causing changes in environmental conditions are identified and calculated in real time. This methodology is implemented through the environmental footprint of Vicomtech. It enables the assessment of both directly or indirectly associated environmental risks with the activity of the organisation and improves our environmental performance as well as interacting with our suppliers and sub-contractors in behaviour matters. 

ISO 9001 y UNE 166002

R&D&i Management Systems
These certificates vouch for the excellence of the R&D&i and place us at the head of innovation management. Specifically, they vouch for, in the case of Vicomtech, professional management of R&D&i. 
Since 2014, the new version of the UNE 166002 regulation on which this recognition is based follows the directives of the European Technical Specification TS 1655 DE Management of R&D&i, published by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN). 
We apply ISO 9001 since a R&D&i management focus, thus adapting the regulation to the management of R&D&i projects.

Reconocimiento de plata a la gestión avanzada

Prize Awarded in December 2015
This prize recognises the most advanced organisations in their management practices, those which seek the balanced satisfaction of all their interest groups: clients, workers, management bodies and society in general. 
At Vicomtech, we regulate all our activities with the R&D&i management system to see and measure their continued improvement, the optimisation of processes of technological innovation and the transfer and generation of knowledge, thus ensuring that we have high quality methodologies.
