The Role of QI Institutions in Mitigating the Economic Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic

Please join us for the kick-off event for the PTB SEE QI Project 8: WB6 QI Response to Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic has posed extraordinary challenges to healthcare systems, national economies and societies. QI institutions have an important role to play in all of these areas in strengthening the response to the coronavirus outbreak: from supporting businesses to improve their resilience to monitoring PPE products on the market and transitioning to new ways of providing QI services remotely. 

In the framework of the SEE QI Fund, PTB is launching Project 8: WB6 QI response to COVID-19 with the aim of enabling QI institutions in the Western Balkan countries to proactively tackle Covid-19 challenges related to QI.

The kick-off event will take place over two days (two hours a day). 

Both events are open to companies, business associations, QI institutions such as metrology institutes, accreditation and certification bodies and all other interested parties.
