Research is a complex scientific 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 improve these complex activities. This section works exclusively to improve the quality of services provided by the 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.

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. The quality management services are regularly evaluated to assess the level of performance and to assure compliance with the requirements of the RQMS.

Through a wide communication network and strong commitment towards human resources development and quality improvement, he has the potential to initiate collaboration.
