A universal deformation of Poisson structures was constructed by M.Kontsevich in 90’s. D.Tamarkin explained that the set of universal deformations are in one-to-one correspondence with Drinfeld Associators. On the other hand, we know that all universal deformations of linear Poisson structures are trivial and coincide with universal enveloping algebra. We show that universal deformations of quadratic Poisson structure are as rich as the full set of all deformations.

The first part of the talk will be devoted to the elementary description of Kontsevich Graph complexes and related combinatorics. The relationships with the universal quantization problems of generic and quadratic Poisson structures will be given in the second part of the talk (based on the joint results with Sergei Merkulov
