BBMRI.be-1.0 has matured into a solid partner network on biobanks in Belgium and has proven to reach out to a broader community beyond the founding partners. To allow further growth and activities, a new governance structure (BBMRI 2.0) has been worked out.
All Belgian retrospective- and prospective-, individual or institutional biobanks with translational research potential can apply for entering the BBMRI.be network.
In contrast to BBMRI.be-1.0, BBMRI.be-2.0 also invites users seeking structural research collaborations with the BBMRI.be network aiming at accessing/building specific sample collections through research collaborations. Potential biobank users include but are not limited to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, research centers, universities, hospitals that do not have a biobank of their own, but are looking for collaborations with the biobanks of the BBMRI.be network.
The following type of collaborations will be considered for biobank users:
● interest in structural (research) collaboration for biospecimen collection
● interest in structural (research) collaboration for biospecimen use
● interest in expertise /best practices sharing
