Date:2/3/2010

collecting biobank samples and associated clinical as well as molecular profile information.

Professor Rudi Balling, director of the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine and the coordinator of EATRIS, says "We are delighted with Finland taking the lead for a significant national commitment towards a European translational research infrastructure. This reflects the excellence of biomedical research in Finland and the recognition that infrastructure is key for Europe to stay competitive".

EMBL-EBI Director and ELIXIR coordinator Professor Janet Thornton, adds "Finland's active participation in developing ELIXIR is excellent news. The close interaction between the biomedical research infrastructures in Finland will help Europe to develop a fully integrated approach to handling heterogeneous data and exploiting it for translational research ".

Professor Kurt Zatloukal from Medical University of Graz and coordinator of BBMRI who has actively worked towards coordination of BMS ESFRIs at EU level further comments "We are delighted to see that coordination of BMS infrastructures also takes place at the national level".

Ms Eeva Ikonen, senior science advisor at the Academy of Finland, comments "Finland has made substantial contributions towards construction and upgrading of national infrastructures through Biocenter Finland. This current funding decision aims at establishing a firm Finnish role on in the development and implementation of BBMRI, EATRIS and ELIXIR. Our approach could hopefully also serve as a model for tighter integration between other European research infrastructures".

Consortium members have also signed a memorandum of understanding.
