BBMRI-NL2.0 receives NWO funding

BBMRI-NL2.0 is the collaboration of BBMRI-NL, CTMM-TraIT and EPI2

BBMRI-NL2.0, the collaboration of BBMRI-NL, CTMM-TraIT (Center for Translational Molecular Medicine, Translational Research IT project) and EPI2 (European Population Imaging Infrastructure), stands to receive € 9,843 million from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), as part of the National Roadmap Large Research Facilities. The news was announced on 1 July, during a ceremony at the LUMC. Secretary of State (Ministry of Education and Science) and NWO-director Jos Engelen announced the six winners of last year's call. Other winners include CLARIAH, High Field Magnet Laboratory (HFML) and the NanoLabNL.

BBMRI-NL2.0 will use the awarded funds to further integrate all available sources of biomedical research materials: this means carrying on with the harmonising and enriching projects BBMRI-NL has funded in the past five years, but also broadening the scope from body matter and data to include images. Also, a data-infrastructure will be built to facilitate the transit from biomedical research to translational research.
