Project description
BBMRI-ERIC is a European Research Infrastructure, which aims to link European Biobanks into a network. The aim of Finnish cooperation is to support Finnish biomedical research and healthcare by coordinating the network of Finnish biobanks. In addition, links Finnish biobanks to the European BBMRI-ERIC network. With FIRI2018 infrastructure funding, Finnish biobanks increase the capacity of sample processing in order to meet the demands of both academic research and business cooperation both qualitatively and quantitatively. In addition, funding will be used to up-date and build-up biobank information systems and to integrate them, as necessary, with systems of background organizations.
