The quality management

The scope of the Foundation’s quality management system covers all its activities in programming, selecting and monitoring research projects. Its ISO 9001 certificate was renewed in spring 2023, with the following wording:

  • Fundraising;
  • Facilitating the emergence of new scientific themes;
  • Programming, designing and launching calls for proposals;
  • Selecting, financing and monitoring projects of scientific excellence;
  • Management of financial resources.

It should be noted that the quality management system does not apply to the following requirements:
- chapter 8.3 Design and development of products and services, as the Foundation does not carry out these activities
- chapter 7.1.5. Resources for monitoring and measurement, as the Foundation does not use any measuring or monitoring equipment requiring verification or calibration.
