Governance

BBMRI-NL consists of six Work Packages with multi-level linking and integration. The Leaders of all Work Packages together form the Scientific Executive Committee, that meets every two months. 

The daily board of BBMRI-NL consists of the two Scientific Leaders, Cisca Wijmenga (currently substituted by Nine Knoers) and Gerrit Meijer, and the Program Manager Tieneke Schaaij-Visser. BBMRI-NL is funded by NWO, Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research.

BBMRI-NL is the Dutch National Node of BBMRI-ERIC: a European research infrastructure for biobanking, that brings together all the main players from the biobanking field – researchers, biobankers, industry, and patients – to boost biomedical research. The BBMRI-NL Node activities in the European BBMRI-ERIC are represented by Gert-Jan van Ommen, Aad van der Lugt and Folkert van Kemenade.
