This workshop takes place in the frame of the EMBRC BioBank project (EBB), aiming to remove barriers accessing bioresources. The coming workshop will connect companies, marine culture collections/biobanks and ABS National Contact Points. The knowledge, issues and needs of companies regarding ABS regulation will be discussed, and flagship use-cases proposed by companies themselves will be selected and beta-tested for them by the EBB partners in the light of the ABS framework.
