In December 2009, the Scientific Council of IBD PAN adopted the provisions of European Charter for Researchers and a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. Beside the Code, the Charter is a key element of EU policy which promotes scientific researches as a field of attractive career.

Awarding the logo is one of the activities of the European Commission as part of the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers, aimed at increasing the attractiveness of the working conditions of scientists in Europe. The European Commission promotes distinguished institutions among international organizations and scientists as those that provide scientists with the best conditions for work and development.
