Creating a network of Greek biobanks and connecting them with BBMRI-ERIC will speed up the integration of Greece in the European Research Area (ERA). The establishment of the Hellenic BBMRI Network will facilitate the integration of scientific resources from the neighboring countries, greatly improve the biomedical research in Greece, and support high-quality collaborations in the field of translational medicine. It will also have a major positive impact on the health services provided for Greek citizens and in the Greek economy. The Greek Government assigned the Biomedical Research Foundation of the Academy of Athens (BRFAA) the role of BBMRI-GR coordinator. BBMRI-GR is based on Peripheral Nodes all over the Greek territory.
