In July 2021, BELSPO launched the ESFRI-FED call to support the participation of Belgian Federal Scientific Institutions (FSI) and federal departments in ESFRI distributed and virtual research infrastructures, through the funding of R&D projects based on scientific excellence and European anchorage. BBMRI.be received funding for a project entitled High quality BioBanking in Belgium: the road towards ISO 20387 accreditation (B3-ISO). Within this project,  BBMRI.be will develop a stepwise quality improvement program that can be implemented at the individual biobanks. This quality improvement program will facilitate the road towards ISO 20387 for the BBMRI.be biobanks by guiding them step by step. At the same time, an accreditation program will be established by BELAC, ultimately leading to ISO accreditation for our biobanks.

To coordinate this project, a vacancy has been opened for a Quality Coordinator for the BBMRI.be National Node (Belgian Cancer Registry).
The main task of the Quality Coordinator will be translating ISO 20387 in the workflow and for each steps coordinate with all of the BBMRI.be biobanks.
More specifications on the tasks of the Quality coordinator and the profile we are looking for, can be found in the vacancy:
