Kick-Off meeting EMN and JNP Traceability in Laboratory Medicine

This 3-day event is aimed at introducing the network to stakeholders and will launch the European Metrology Network for Traceability in Laboratory Medicine (TraceLabMed) and its associated Joint Network Project 18NET02. TraceLabMed was established to provide a coordinated metrology-based quality infrastructure in an area that affects almost every European citizen. More details about TraceLabMed’s mission can be found  here >>

The interaction with stakeholders in talks and open discussion rounds is a part of the future strategic development of the network: Take your chance and participate!

The event will start with internal matters on Wednesday. Stakeholders are invited to join on Thursday where talks will introduce the network and discussions will provide background information on the EMN’s initial activities. The Friday morning session will focus on developing strategies to communicate and align our activities with established organisations to further common goals in traceability in laboratory medicine.

Who should attend
If you are actively involved in the field of laboratory medicine, you are cordially invited to attend the TraceLabMed kick-off meeting. It will provide you with an opportunity to contribute ideas and your valuable experiences to shape the future of a metrology-based quality infrastructure network.
