BIOTECH-GO Phases and quality management

The project methodology is based on System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) concept, which divides the project lifetime into 5 operational phases and 10 stages. They outline the effective strategy of BIOTECH-GO for achieving the main project objective during the project and post-project life (Fig. 1). These phases guarantee the appropriate evaluation of the project and ensure the potential success of the target users and sectors in exploiting project deliverables and understanding the project impact.

The BIOTECH-GO Quality Management

A set of quality indicators are applied to measure the progress in different phases. The quality management tools monitor the integrity, flexibility and efficiency of the project components, using procedures for control and assessment of the BIOTECH-GO outcomes.

Allocation of the ECVET credit points depends on the national requirements. The project team prepares a framework of credit points, providing information about the relative weight of the units within a full qualification for defined EQF level.

Formal learning contexts in different countries and situations are compared to determine learning time for competence acquisition in non-formal/informal manner.

Process quality indicators should observe:

  • Relevance between content and objectives.
  • Criteria for assessment and self-assessment of the work.
  • Appraising the adequacy of the project communication and plans for operational phases.
  • Evaluation of the project outcomes against the EU requirements.
