Presentation

Swiss Biobanking Platform (SBP) is an initiative of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) established as the national coordination and reference platform for biobanking activities in all fields of research. It responds to the needs of the research community in terms of coordination and harmonization of biobanking activities by increasing visibility and achieving high quality, transparency, accessibility and interoperability of biobanks. To achieve this, SBP provides a variety of services to the research community and access to BBMRI-ERIC as the Swiss node. 

SBP and SNSF invite the research community to a Workshop on «Quality in Biobanking», March 11 2019 in Bern. The Workshop will specially be dedicated to identifying the necessary conditions to make data archiving and high sample quality possible and on how to achieve them. At the workshop, you will actively participate in shaping the future portfolio of SBP within the Swiss research landscape. 

Please register to this Workshop until March 1st 2019 and indicate the workshop you are interested to participate in.
