ICOS-ERIC EUROPEAN RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE HAS UNDERGONE INTERNATIONAL EVALUATION
The International External Evaluation Commission has evaluated the five-year implementation period of the European Research Infrastructure ICOS-ERIC, of which CzechGlobe is a founding member. Since its foundation, it has established itself as a global player in the field of greenhouse gas and climate change observation. The Commission assessed five areas – management, financial management, internal involvement and integration, data and its use, and international cooperation, based on a set of 36 key performance indicators.
CzechGlobe has obtained ISO Certificates in the areas of quality management and environmental management
Global Change Research Institute CAS – CzechGlobe was one of the first institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences to obtain two ISO Certificates in the areas of quality management ISO 9001:2015 (according to CSN ISO 9001:2016) and environmental management ISO 14001:2015 (according to CSN ISO 14001:2016).
