UNIDO launched its catalogue of tools and methodologies for Boosting Competitiveness with Quality & Standards. The catalogue serves to introduce UNIDO’s unique set of resources used to strengthen competitiveness through the application of quality and standards.
These particular tools provide pertinent information to policymakers to facilitate policy and decision making, support Quality Infrastructure institutions and conformity assessment bodies in assessing and strengthening their capacity to provide competent services in line with market needs, and help producers enhancing their compliance capacity, while it also serves to create a sound understanding of quality and standards compliance as a diver for competitiveness and market access.
Through the UNIDO Knowledge Hub, relevant stakeholders can access publicly available tools providing and helping to visualize useful information, free online training courses, as well as guidance documents for implementing a particular methodology, standard or any other practice. The tools and methodologies available and under development assist with assessing the current status, identifying gaps and thus facilitating related improvement of relevant institutions, producers and other stakeholders.
Most tools and resources offered on the UNIDO Knowledge Hub are publicly accessible and free of charge (though some require guidance by a specialized trainer and are only available for use upon prior approval and adequate training).
Stay tuned for an upcoming training on innovation management as well as for other periodically added material!
