BBMRI-ERIC Expert Centres are non-profit organisations that represent a novel public-private partnership model. They are responsible for the analysis of samples in the country of origin under internationally standardised conditions and for the generation of primary data.
BBMRI-ERIC Expert Centres integrate pre-competitive public and private research and development activities by providing access not only to biological samples and medical data but also to the broad spectrum of medical and scientific expertise related to the samples, data, and their analysis.
CBmed, an Austrian, publicly funded competence center, links excellent research infrastructure, scientific expertise, medical knowledge, and national and international industry partners for systematic medical biomarker research.
CBmed brings together scientific experts with leading pharmaceutical, diagnostic, medical-technology and IT industry partners. In addition, CBmed has a strong network in the area of biobanking including the largest biobank in Europe, Biobank Graz, and the European biobanking network BBMRI-ERIC.
CBmed research projects will identify new biomarkers, validate potential biomarkers and conduct translational biomarker research for products to be used in clinical practice.
CBmed will develop easily applicable, targeted, minimally invasive biomarkers for better diagnosis, better therapy monitoring and more personalised treatment.

Focussing on biomarker verification and validation, ATMA Platform is an expert centre designed to accelerate clinical research.
Currently being set up by BBMRI.it, ATMA-EC is a technological hub to carry out research projects that can overcome the difficulties established models of collaboration between academia and industry sometimes face.
A non-profit organisation based on a public-private partnership model, the ATMA-EC hub is located in Aviano, Italy. It integrates public and private research as well as development activities by providing access to biological samples and data, and to a broad spectrum of medical and scientific expertise related to the archiving and analysis of tissue samples.
ATMA-EC also includes biobanking infrastructures that can to collect and correlate data from different fields, such as biology and diagnostic imaging procedures. Moreover, it includes a second hub in Naples that focusses on radiomics.
Supported by Assobiotec, the Association of Biotech Industries, ATMA-EC is a consortium including the following institutions:
