HandsOn Biobanks “transformed” to Europe Biobank Week
On 30 September 2015, BBMRI-ERIC and ESBB (European, Middle Eastern and African Society for Biopreservation & Biobanking) have formed a strategic alliance for the benefit of European biobanking efforts. Starting in 2016, the two organisations will jointly organise the most important annual biobanking conference in Europe and facilitate collaboration on activities related to biobanking and biopreservation of samples for research and development. This agreement emphasises that biobanks are a European strength.
