Cross-border platform for efficient management of biobanks
Priority Axis 4
Enhancing capacity building and cross-border governance
Specific Objective: 
OS 4.1.
Investment Priority: 
PI 11CTE
Typology: 
Standard
Overall Objective of the Project: 

The main objective of the project is to build inter-institutional collaboration capacity by encouraging public authorities and key stakeholders of the health care sector in the PA to create joint solutions for harmonized cross-border biobanking through a common platform and the creation of the first pilot cross-border biobank of biological samples

Project summary: 

The biobank is a collection of biological material and associated data used for research and clinical care. The setting up of harmonized and shared biobanks complying with the GDPR, national and EU legislation and ethical standards is a common challenge in the program area (PA). In fact, the current absence of harmonized and shared biobanks hinders the management and exchange of biological samples necessary for standardized and quality research. The general objective of the project is to improve the capacities of cross-border institutional collaboration by encouraging public authorities and key stakeholders in the biobanking sector to identify common solutions for the harmonization of processes and for a more efficient cross-border management of biobanks and networks of biobanks. The objective will be achieved with the development of a common biobank model through an integrated cross-border management platform. This will be tested in a pilot action setting up a standardized biobank supported by the regional authorities. The target groups will be policy makers, public authorities, regulators, companies, health systems, universities, research institutes and clusters.

Main results: 

Increase the management capacities of public authorities and key actors in biobanking in the health sector through the creation of a new cross-border system, giving a complete overview of the territory, favoring the exchange of information and good practices in the cross-border area. Through harmonized data from cross-border biobanks, public sector stakeholders will have easier and faster access to databases and easier activities related to biobanking, reducing the time required for the implementation of each single operation and favoring the optimization of administrative burdens. The project will help to improve cross-border cooperation between citizens and institutions of the program area by establishing a single biobank management system that will help to achieve the program indicator, i.e. the increased capacity of public authorities and parties interested in cross-border cooperation and governance in the biobanking sector.
