PHILOSOPHY, NATURE AND PURPOSE OF BUSINESS: BBMRI-ERIC is designed to facilitate the joint establishment and operation of research infrastructures of European interest. The ERIC status allows pulling together biobanks and biomolecular resources into a pan-European facility and providing access to collections of partner biobanks and biomolecular resources, their expertise and services on a non-economic basis. BBMRI-ERIC is established for an unlimited period of time. This Newsletter is set up to support this philosophy by informing the community about recent developments, upcoming meetings, relevant publications and vacancies.
