Facilitating Access to Marine Biological Resources

The most important biobanks of marine organisms in Europe are located in the Atlantic Area and are part of the European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC-ERIC), a distributed global reference Research Infrastructure for fundamental and applied marine biology and ecology research, which is included in the European Strategic Roadmap for Research Infrastructures since 2008.

Biobanks provide Marine Biological Resources to academic and industrial researchers, becoming the backbone for the search of unique marine genes, bio-actives and biomaterials with potential for commercial development and job creation.

The EBB project aims to contribute to ensure the practical long-term transnational coordination of the marine biobanks through the establishment of the European Blue Biobank; a world class centrally curated marine biobank operated by EMBRC-ERIC. This initiative, the first of its kind worldwide, will increase the diversity and quality of Marine Biological Resources made available to user communities, facilitating their biotechnological valorization.

THE PROJECT

Biobanks contribute to conservation of marine diversity by complementing traditional in-situ conservation techniques with ex-situ methods that are safe and reproducible for short, medium, and long-term storage of biological specimens.

OUR NEWS & EVENTS

  • 17 June, 2021 – - Utilization of marine genetic resources from jurisdictional waters requires providing proof that sampling and utilization of such resources has been done in accordance with National ABS regulations in place. EEB project has implemented a series of use cases (Report on the use cases) to learn the possible constraints and problems that may arise during the… ...

  • 17 June, 2021 – - EBB project engaged with end-users of marine biological resources to learn about the practical implications of complying with Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) regulations in the countries of origin and the major hurdles they need to face during the process. Sixteen case studies for non-commercial utilisation of genetic resources are presented in this document, selected… ...

  • 27 May, 2021 – - On Monday, June 14, 2021, the Leibniz Institute DSMZ/German Nagoya Protocol HuB will be hosting an online EU ABS Networking Event. This meeting will be organized together with the European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC), the Union for Ethical BioTrade, ABS-int, the Dutch ABS National Focal Point (hosted by Wageningen University and Research) and the… ...
