Despite increased interest in the topic over the past ten years, effective strategies for sustainable biobanking are remain elusive Given that each biobank is inherently unique, one-size-fits-all solutions are challenging to implement. BBMRI-NL has made a series on sustainable biobanking, combining current knowledge from literature, workshops, and focus groups. The series contains an infographic with nine recommendations to make biobanks more sustainable; it includes additional practical tools, examples, and background information. Through this series, BBMRI-NL aims to provide support and inspiration for biobanks to help them find solutions that fit their individual situation.
