2. International Conference "TQM - Advanced and Intelligent Approaches" and 30. National Quality Conference.
The Quality Center site was designed and set up on the Internet on September 25, 2005 with the aim of showing the core activities of the Center, and above all to provide online user and editorial communication related to the organization of the Quality Festival and the "International Journal for Quality Research" (http://www.cqm.rs)
The first National Conference on Quality of Life was of particular importance for the achievement of the quality vision. This is because the quality of life determines the social position and represents the goal of social development. Measuring the quality of life indicators determines the differentiation of social groups, their status and role, differences in relation to comparable (etalon) groups, and hence priority areas for improving the quality of life.
From the International Quality Conferences (IQC), within the Quality Festival and the Quality Conference organized by the Podgorica Quality Center (ICQME), the English Language Journal also produced a journal. Since 2007, the Center for Quality of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Kragujevac together with the Center for Quality of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Podgorica started with the publication of the International Journal for Quality Research.
