Additional Information

Since its creation, the Biobanking and BioMolecular resources Research Infrastructure – European Research Infrastructure Consortium (BBMRI-ERIC) has made a remarkable contribution to European and international cutting-edge research, as one of the largest RIs for health research and in life sciences in Europe. With 2023 marking its 10-year anniversary, BBMRI-ERIC is facing a unique moment to look into the future and to develop its strategy for the next decade to ensure long-term sustainability.

The EvolveBBMRI project aims to further develop BBMRI-ERIC for the benefit of its scientific communities and users, increase its capacity to serve EU policy priorities, and further deepen its collaboration with industry. The project is structured in four thematic pillars: 1) Acceleration of datafication of biobanks and biomolecular resources to enable reproducible advanced medical research in support of EU health priorities; 2) teaming up with industry to facilitate greener biobanking; 3) setting long-term sustainability measures for BBMRI that also address RI landscape gaps; and 4) strengthened approaches related to career paths, training and outreach activities to maximise impact.

The project will ensure the implementation of specific results for 6 key target groups: a) members of the scientific community (universities, hospitals, research institutes); b) the BBMRI-ERIC National Nodes, biobanks in Europe and beyond; c) industry and private foundation members; d) policy- and decision-makers at national and European levels; e) European and international network partners; and f) donors, patients and citizens. EvolveBBMRI activities and outputs in its four pillars will increase the long-term sustainability of BBMRI-ERIC, thus contributing to a more clearly structured and strengthened European research infrastructure landscape. Ultimately, the project will contribute to increase European scientific excellence, enabling scientific and societal challenges to be more effectively tackled and to expand and secure the global competitiveness of the European Research Area.

The website was co-funded within ADOPT BBMRI-ERIC, a project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 676550.
