UC works in line with the requirements of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct by interlinking the general principles of recruitment, working conditions and career development.

The objective is to work developing an attractive, open and viable environment, with a commitment to improve employment stability, as well as to provide adequate salary and social security, enabling researchers to be recruited and retained in environments that guarantee high quality research activity.

Researchers' Welcome

On one hand, different UC services are working together to draft and implement a welcoming protocol that will define the procedure for the incorporation of researchers to our University, including the practical issues regarding the arrival of researchers, as well as intellectual property issues, work safety and institutional and management information.

The welcome procedures carried out at our University are described and explained in detail in the Guide for the Management of the Mobility of Foreign Research Staff in Spain, published by FECYT in 2017.

This guide is a summary of the main issues that foreign research staff must address when they decide to develop part of their career in Spain. It is useful for resolving doubts, both for the research staff themselves and for the host centres. The document covers topics such as: main characteristics of research and research careers in Spain, entry and residence conditions, recognition of foreign academic qualifications, labour market, tax and social security system, national health system, education and the EURAXESS Spain network, which provides support to researchers during periods of mobility.

For now, researchers can find relevant information about the University of Cantabria and its general services in this guide for international students.

Equality and no-discrimination
The Area of Equality and Social Responsibility is a service available to the community of the University of Cantabria with the aim of promoting measures that incorporate equality and social responsibility in a transversal way in all University of Cantabria policies, as well as to ensure their fulfilment.

The University of Cantabria is a pioneering Spanish educational institution in the field of gender equality. In 2007, the university defined a comprehensive work-life balance plan, which included a wide range of measures in relation to flexible working hours, family care and protection against violence.

In 2020, the 2nd Plan for Equality of Women and Men of the University of Cantabria was approved by the Governing Board of UC, updating a pioneering plan approved in 2009.
