Bibliographical noteFunding Information:
The Education Committee was established in 1995 with the intention of providing a more structural approach to training in HSCT. Together with the European School for Haematology (ESH), it has successfully organized the annual residential training course in which senior transplant physicians and scientists interact in formal and informal settings with less experienced colleagues. This course is regularly oversubscribed and has been successful in obtaining central funding from the European Commission to support scholarships in conjunction with the course. The committee has issued an ESH-EBMT transplant manual, now in its third edition.
The primary aim of the JACIE is to improve the quality of HCT in Europe by providing a means whereby transplant centers, HSC collection facilities and processing facilities can demonstrate high-quality practice. This is supported by co-ordinating training courses in quality management for applicant centers and courses for inspectors. An additional and wider aim is to ensure harmonization between JACIE standards and other national and international standards, including the EU Tissues and Cells Directive (Directive 2004/23/EC) and the related implementing directives.
