EUROLAB and Eurachem sign MoU to enhance cooperation on key topics of relevance for the laboratory community
In light of a close and fruitful cooperation, EUROLAB and Eurachem signed their Memorandum of Understanding on 19 October, via an online meeting. EUROLAB and Eurachem will work closely together in identifying key activities to further develop, undertake collaborative tasks, as well as exchange of expertise on topics of common interest.
The regular communication between the Chairs and Secretariats will enable coordination and joint positions on policy matters of interest to the European laboratory community and its customers, such as the European Commission R&D programmes, pre-standardisation activities, standards for laboratories and accreditation practices.
Eurachem and EUROLAB will work together in the organisation of joint events, contributing to the joint work in working groups of mutual interest (e.g. on development of guidelines) and assist each other in finding suitable experts for dealing with specific tasks, such as sampling and decision rules.
Both organisations will encourage liaison at the national level between their respective national members, in order to facilitate and improve benefits and exchange of data between the “members’ members”.
Last but not least the communication between the organisations will be enhanced through a close collaboration between the two secretariats in the creation and exchange of publications, briefings and other communications materials that make relevance for the membership.
