From 22-24 February in Berlin, QuoData will offer an international Workshop on the planning and evaluation of proficiency tests and method validation studies.
The new location in Berlin makes it easier for PT providers and the growing PROLab community worldwide to attend the workshop. All participants can still expect the well-known QuoData workshop atmosphere.
All 2016/2017 dates for QuoData’s roster of workshops have been finalized. What's new this year is the addition of a brand new workshop. It will focus on method validation from an expert’s point-of-view.
QuoData will be in Ghent, Belgium from May 9th to 10th for the EURACHEM Method Validation – Current Practices and Future Challenges Workshop to present a joint research project carried out by QuoData on behalf of the German Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL).
