Quality management platform in research institutes (part 1)

- Klembalska Agnieszka M.Sc.

Agnieszka KlembalskaResearch institutes now have a chance to take the leading role in the system of commercialization of the effects of R&D works. To take advantage of this chance they have to strengthen their position on the market through, among others, reorganization of structures and focus on quality management. Multi-aspect approach to the issue of quality in the activity of research institutes based on the analysis of the group of stakeholders and products has led to the formation of the concept for the establishment of a quality management platform – an entity gathering 3 sections:
1) Section of Quality Management Systems,
2) Section of Scientific Information,
3) Section of Cooperation with the Client.
The choice of the above areas, according to the author, corresponds to the specific character of the functioning of research institutes and emphasizes the need to improve and guarantee quality in this (often undervalued) sphere.
