Expert report on biobanks' integration

Summary of key points:

  • CSC agrees with the expert group on the funding of biobanks: mere coordination and harmonization measures do not guarantee the expected social impact of biobanks if insufficient, short-term funding is provided.
  • The information security aspects of data processing should be taken into account comprehensively and sustainably. Attention should also be paid to the structures and processes required by the EU's general data protection regulation.
  • The alignment with other national and EU level health data initiatives needs to be ensured.
