Benefit/tasks for BBMRI-ERIC: As an external project partner, BBMRI-ERIC’s role is to provide information about EU countries – how the landscape of biobanks and sample collections look like in each country and what the local regulations for access are.
Biobanks and quality registries, currently relatively under-used infrastructures, are valuable tools for product development and validation, molecularly stratiﬁed clinical trials, follow-up of current healthcare outcomes, predicting impact of new products and services, and more. Access to qualitative sample and data collections can give unparalleled insights, paving the way for new medicines, treatments and medical products. The project RABBIT is to support EIT Health partners in simplifying access to biobanks and quality registries, and to help them leverage the assets available all over the Europe.
