Quality Policy

IMIBIC believes that quality is an essential aspect of the Institute’s activities. Quality must be quantified and therefore measured objectively and evaluated externally by other institutions. To this end, the activities of the Institute are geared to meeting the needs of professionals, patients and other stakeholders by means of an Integrated Quality Management System in accordance with the accreditation scheme of the ISCIII Health Research Institutes.

Research, Development and Innovation Policy

At IMIBIC, innovation means introducing new products, services or organisational processes in the system that permit the effective application of research results and translate them into real benefits for the health of citizens.

Our Research, Development and Innovation Policy is built on the strategic pillars of multidisciplinary collaboration and precision medicine as the foundation of a translational Institute with a national and international scope.

The R&D&I policy is based on a global and cross-cutting approach to ensure only the highest standards of quality. To achieve this aim, we have a R&D&I management system that complies with UNE Standard 166002:2014.
