The European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC) is a distributed research infrastructure that aims to provide a strategic delivery mechanism for excellent and large-scale marine science in Europe. With its services, EMBRC will support both fundamental and applied research based on marine bioresources and marine ecosystems. In particular, EMBRC aims to drive forward the development of blue biotechnologies. EMBRC will provide the suitable research environment for users from academia, industry, technology and additional sectors. 


EMBRC has successfully completed a 3-year preparatoy phase resulting in a blueprint of the future infrastructure. Currently, EMBRC is being set up (implementation/construction) and operation is planned to start in 2016. However, some EMBRC services will become available at an earlier date. Presently, EMBRC has nine European countries and associated countries as full members. The EMBRC national nodes comprise research infrastructure that is located in leading marine biological stations and laboratories in Europe. EMBRC builds on existing facilities, equipment and human capital of those coastal marine biological stations and laboratories in Europe.


EMBRC`s vision is the long-term collaboration and common development of strategies, best practices and standards related to the use of marine biological resources and marine biological research in general to fit user needs, drive marine science forward, and underpin the blue bioeconomy in Europe. EMBRC aims to provide its services foremost to users from academia, industry and governments, and it will support both basic and applied research. Services will include the provision of access to European marine, coastal ecosystems and biodiversity, marine model organisms, culture collections, technology platforms including imaging, omics and structural biology facilities, e-infrastructure services, as well as culture, laboratory and training facilities and services.
