The BBMRI-ERIC Directory is the first IT service delivered by BBMRI-ERIC. It is available both for external users and internal BBMRI-ERIC purposes. The first two versions of the Directory have been jointly developed by the BBMRI-ERIC IT community, prior to the start of the Common Service IT. The Directory 1.0 was released in July 2015 and the Directory 2.0, covering 515 biobanks with more than 60,000,000 samples, was released in December 2015 as the first milestone of the ADOPT BBMRI-ERIC project.

Sample/Data Locator

Is a service to locate samples and data sets hosted by the biobanks that are of interest for the requesters. The Locator will allow for detailed privacy-preserving, multi-criteria search of samples and data sets, while also respecting the degree of control required by the biobank infrastructure operators. This will also include the development of connectors to interface to the information systems of biobanks.

Sample/Data Negotiator

Is a service to allow for negotiating access of the requesters to samples and data sets hosted by the biobanks. The Negotiator focuses on making the communication between many requesters and biobanks as efficient as possible.

Expert Centre

CBmed, an Austrian funded competence center, links excellent research infrastructure, scientific expertise, medical knowledge, national and international industry partners for systematic medical biomarker research.


BBMRI-ERIC provides tools, expertise as well as knowledge and experience for the biobanking community.
