EMBRC questionnaire - awareness of Nagoya protocol

The European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC), a European Research Infrastructure dedicated to providing services for fundamental and applied marine biology and ecology research, kindly asks you to fill a questionnaire on your awareness on ABS legislation (Nagoya protocol). You will find the on-line questinnaire in the following link:


This questionnaire is to be used within the "EMBRC-biobank" project (see explanations in text here), in order to obtain information in relation to the needs of companies in the framework of the recent regulations on Access to biological/genetic resources and fair Sharing of Benefits on their utilization (ABS), and to identify use-cases that the EMBRC as marine biological resource provider, could be testing to help such companies. The information obtained will serve as the basis for the workshop "Practical steps for facilitating the use of marine biological resources for commercial R&D in the context of new Access & Benefit Sharing legal framework" that will take place in the Headquarters of Pole-Mer Bretagne in Brest (France) on the 16th of May 2018.

The questionnaire results will only be used by the EBB project and will be shared with the project partners but will not be made available to any third parties. The results will be anonymised when reporting.
