FINBB, the Finnish Biobank Cooperative, provides biobanks with services related to sample and data processing, law and communications.
It also acts as a one stop shop to biobank materials for academic and industrial researchers. FINBB plays an important role in the practical implementation of the national health sector growth strategy and in building the national genome and cancer centres as well as the health data service operator.
FINBB was established by six Finnish universities and the six largest hospital districts in the Autumn of 2017 and is gradually building up its services.
BBMRI.fi coordination activities are being integrated with the FINBB Biobank Cooperative.
