The congress will highlight state-of-the-art biobanking innovations and research. Our partner Instituto Valenciano de Oncologia will participate in it, speaking about the standard ISO 20387 that we are performing within the ULISES project.

The Europe Biobank Week (EBW) Congress, jointly organised between BBMRI-ERIC (the European Research Infrastructure for Biobanking and Biomolecular Resources in Health and Life Science) and ESBB (the European, African and Middle Eastern Society for Biobanking and Biopreservation) will take place from 14-17 May at The Hofburg in Vienna, Austria.

The 2024 congress theme is: “Strengthening biobanks and biorepositories: Collaborative approaches for a sustainable future” with sessions encompassing the latest developments together with fundamental biobanking themes.

Welcoming over 600 delegates, including more than 40 exhibitors and 13 sponsors, this year marks the first in-person congress following the COVID-19 pandemic.

This Congress will bring together researchers, biobank staff, institutions, and industry who engage in high-quality scientific sessions.

Five expert workshops, 87 oral and 140 poster presentations are set to be delivered over three days. A major topic on the agenda is new models of academia-industry partnerships that will be explored throughout Congress and beyond.

The Instituto Valenciano de Oncologia, one of the ULISES partners, will participate in it. Dr. Jose Antonio Lopez will speak about ISO20387, an international standard for technical competence on biobanking that IVO is performing within the ULISES project.
