On September 2, 2021 the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences received the prestigious HR Excellence in Research Award. We have thus joined more than 600 European scientific institutions that already have this European award in human resources area. However, by granting this certification, our work does not end. We will continue to work on further improvements of working environment for our employees (not only scientists, but also administrative ones). We expect that obtaining this award will increase the prestige of our workplace in the eyes of the professional public, its attractiveness in terms of addressing new employees, including those from abroad, and strengthen our position to obtain funding from Czech and foreign grant programs as well.
