1st Anniversary of the club of National Research Infrastructures in Biology and Health

1st Anniversary of the club of National Research Infrastructures in Biology and Health


The club of INBSs is an informal consortium of the coordinations from 16 Research Infrastructures. It was initiated one year ago.

Why a CLUB?

  • Past institutional initiatives (DGRI, ANR…) stopped in 2019
  • Specificities and problems common to INBS (mostly distributed with complex perimeters and parent institutions). 21 Infrastructures in the 2018 roadmap of the Ministry of Research (16 members of the Club in October 2021) out of 70, for all disciplines.
  • Sharing of information on: MESRI WGs, ESFRI, Calls (from competition, to coordinated actions)
  • Overlapping service offer instead of benefiting from complementary technologies and skills between INBSs
  • Developing common activities; what, why and how?

What did we do this year ?

The National Infrastructures in Biology and Health (INBS) club is organizing its first symposium on a theme that concerns them all: the life of the data generated within them.

This two half-day symposium will be in French and will have multiple objectives:

  • Practices and developments in progress or implemented by INBS or Research Infrastructures of other disciplines around the management of our data (PGD structure),
  • Ideas for improvement and cohesion for the future, regarding access to storage and scientific computing structures,
  • Moral and ethical responsibility towards these data (FAIRisation, ethical OpenScience…) and their valorisation,
  • Finally, we will also focus this first meeting on the exchange of experiences between the INBS and with our respective Institutions.
