From the HEALINT Protocol to ISO IWA 35

HEALINT 2nd Design Workshop

The HEALINT Consortium held its 2nd Design Workshop at Middlesex University in London, UK, on September 12, 2018, following the 3rd Consortium Meeting on the previous day.

Representatives from most partners of the consortium analysed thoroughly the Healint Protocol with the quality requirements for traineeship host organizations that resulted from intellectual output 1 and discussed lively the best approaches for intellectual ouput 2, which will assure the credibility of the audits performed using the Healint Protocol as a basis.

The researchers also reached consensus regarding the possibility to submit the HEALINT Protocol as a new work item to CEN, the European Committee for Standardization for possible further development and adoption as a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA).

The HEALINT Research Team will continue to work remotely until the next face2face meeting planned to take place in April 2019 in Pori, Finland.
