BBMRI.QM Newsroom

“Get insights from the outside” – that is the motto for the consultation hours on quality-related topics in the field of biobanking and biomedical research and development.

The agenda of each meeting will consist of these 4 items:

1. Q-uick
You get a quick overview of current developments in quality management matters.

2. Q-uiz
You learn about 3 NODES/3 MINUTES/3 SLIDES, packed with information about current Q-activities, presented by members of the BBMRI-ERIC community.

3. Q-uest
Join our quest for new information and get exciting insights from behind the quality scenes via our guest speakers.

4. Q-change
Exchange ideas on quality as we take time for inspiring and innovative discussions about future needs of the biobanking and the biomedical research network.
