Swiss National Science Foundation has just launched its second BioLink Call!
BioLink is intended for investigators who wish to network their biobanks using IT systems. This harmonisation of the IT systems will result in the sharing of data so as to address well-defined, scientific questions. BioLink is open to all research domains. The biobanks are already established.
Grantees commit to collaborate with the Swiss Biobanking Platform and, in particular, to consult with SBP on the choice of their IT systems and to register in SBP’s national biobank directory.
Letters of intent are to be sent by 16 July 2018
The SBP Toolbox is an innovative web-based solution integrating the critical success factors of biobanks and biobank infrastructures.
