 Research Quality Management

Scientific research is a complex process that requires effective coordination and teamwork as well as reliable information, materials and equipment. The Research Quality Management Section (RQMS) was established to manage and continuously improve the quality of these complex activities. This section works exclusively to improve the quality of services provided by KAIMRC. The RQMS is responsible for developing an effective Quality Management System (QMS) to ensure systematic and optimal quality improvement in the research center. The focus of the RQMS is continuous performance improvement and improvement of the overall institution’s organizational environment by implementing high international standards. The RQMS provides ongoing support to all sections of the KAIMRC through training and consultation, so that they can then implement the quality management systems efficiently and effectively in their respective departments and units. RQMS as well as KAIMRC services are regularly monitored to assess the level of performance by developing Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and to ensure compliance with national and international quality standards.​​
