EBRCN (European Biological Resource Centers Network)

In this section:

What is EBRCN?
EBRCN is a project funded by the European Union until April, 2004. It addresses important issues raised by the current OECD Initiative on Biological Resource Centres (BRCs) requiring culture collections to adapt to support biotechnology for the 21st century. E.g., it aims to:
  1. exploit European expertise in BRCs and Information Technology, set common policies and maintain high standards of operation,
  2. allow links to be made between the BRC catalogues and other data sets and ensure that the large amount of specialised information that is presently hidden in BRCs is made available and will utilise a single common website as its electronic centre,
  3. co-ordinate responses to new initiatives relevant to access to - and use of - living resources, be they micro-organisms or ex situ cell lines. It will increase collection capacity and enable cost-effective introduction of new technologies by improving efficiency and by coordinating common activities.
For more information on the project go to http://www.ebrcn.org/. You can also subscribe to the EBRCN Newsletter through the ad hoc online form which is available in the "Contacts" section of this site.

How do EBRCN and CABRI relate?
EBRCN partners support CABRI as their central electronic contact point for searches in their catalogues and for distributing Quality Management Guidelines. CABRI is the base for the EBRCN "virtual" European BRC.
