EUROPEAN MARINE BIOLOGICAL RESOURCE CENTRE BIOBANK (EBB)

EBB is an EMBRC-ERIC project whose main goal is to facilitate sustainable access to marine biodiversity, its associated data and extractable products for local and international academia and industry users, and to to incentivise biodiversity conservation in coastal ecosystems by promoting compliance with Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) regulations derived from the Nagoya Protocol.

Facilitating Access to Marine Biological Resources

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.

EBB is an EMBRC-ERIC project whose main goal is to facilitate sustainable access to marine biodiversity, its associated data, and extractable products for local and international academia and industry users, and to incentivise biodiversity conservation in coastal ecosystems by promoting compliance with Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) regulations derived from the Nagoya Protocol.

EBB aims to contribute to the protection of marine biodiversity through the establishment of the European Blue Biobank, a world class centrally curated marine biobank operated by EMBRC-ERIC.
