Quality Assurance/ Quality Control Officer

Sittard-Geleen, 7 November 2017 

Within the Biomedical program we are building a (Bio)medical Accelerator Matrix: to accelerate the process from patent to patient. Many potential biomedical concepts don’t reach their potential, because the road from idea to market is a long, arduous one. The Matrix is created to fill this gap. It creates the conditions for our clients to learn whilst working in a tailor made plug-and-play setting with infrastructural, technical and service elements. At the heart of the matrix is the quality management system that defines and sets the standard for everything we do being it in research projects or with our start-ups.

We believe that by sharing knowledge, expertise and facilities we can fill the knowledge-gap and by doing so limit the costs. Currently within our facilities, we work with 4 start-up companies and six multi-partner development projects in the medical device and cell therapy field to translate their concept into first-in patient proof of principle.
