The BBMRI ELSI Services across the Nodes & BMS RIs
The CORBEL webinar series continues with a presentation by Michaela Mayrhofer from BBMRI-ERIC on "The BBMRI ELSI Services across the Nodes & BMS RIs".
The BBMRI-ERIC ELSI Services supports facilitating compliance with regulatory requirements and best practice standards. The service started working for the biobanking community and subsequently extend to the BMS community and includes
- The ELSI Knowledge Base is an open-access resource platform, containing practical knowledge and information on relevant ELSI topics.
- The Ethics Check is a support service for researchers who are applying for H2020 research projects or similar. We assist with the compulsory Ethics Self-Assessment section during the application phase.
- The ELSI Policy Monitoring follows relevant policy and regulatory developments at European level. We organise coordinated responses to relevant public consultations, as well as other interventions.
The CORBEL webinar series aims to address challenges and share best practice between biological and medical research infrastructures. The series is aimed at technical operators of RIs and is aligned with the CORBEL competency framework.
CORBEL webinars include an audience Q&A session during which attendees can ask questions and make suggestions. Please note that all webinars are recorded and available for posterior viewing.
This webinar took place on 21 April 2020 and is part of the CORBEL webinar series. It is best viewed in full screen mode using Google Chrome. The slides from this webinar can be downloaded from SlideShare here.
