Sustainable Biobanking

“Sustainability is [a biobank’s] capacity to remain operative, effective, and competitive over its expected lifetime.”  - OECD Global Science Forum 2017

What BBMRI.nl is doing to improve biobank sustainability

Biobanks are responsible for their own sustainability, but also depend on outside factors that hinder or promote sustainability. BBMRI.nl has been working to both support individual biobanks and to create the right conditions for sustainable biobanking.

Recommendations for individual biobanks to improve sustainability

BBMRI.nl has drafted nine recommendations to help biobanks become more sustainable, in combination with providing good practices, tools, inspiration and background knowledge.

Creating the right conditions for sustainable biobanking

Together with Dutch biobanks and biobank users from academia and industry, BBMRI.nl has drafted recommendations toward creating the right conditions for sustainable biobanking.
