Three medical research infrastructures sign a long-term collaboration agreement
The Biobanking and BioMolecular resources Research Infrastructure (BBMRI), the European Research Infrastructure for Translational Medicine (EATRIS), and the European Clinical Research Infrastructure Network (ECRIN) signed an agreement in the last week of February in Brussels to build a long-term sustainable collaboration strategy.
The agreement lays the ground for facilitating user access to pan-European medical research infrastructures and supporting the development of tools, joint services, and common approaches on quality, standards, and advocacy. As a result, the agreement will empower the three parties to provide even better services to the biomedical community and to facilitate a more cost-effective research and development process.
The SCTO has been chosen by the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) to represent Switzerland in the ECRIN consortium. The ECRIN European Correspondent (EuCo) for Switzerland is based at the SCTO and coordinates fee-based services and support for scientific partner institutions nationally and internationally.
