PAASP partner Björn Gerlach undertook a three-month course focusing on classical quality management systems, like ISO9001 and EFQM. After passing written and oral examinations, Björn became a TÜV-Rhineland certified quality manager (“Qualitätsbeauftragter, -manager and -auditor”).
This knowledge will contribute to PAASP’s mission of enhancing quality in biomedical research but also helps to implement a quality system within PAASP itself. One of the midterm goals for PAASP is the certification of all internal procedures according to the ISO9001 quality management system.
