ESBB’s vision and mission entail to educate, advance and promote each and any one of our members independent of the membership category. How else could we otherwise reach our goals, sustain our achievements and reach even higher? Therefore, ESBB is dedicated to advance and promote our members’ career at all levels. ESBB facilitates this by three key aspects: education & training, mentoring, and visibility!

ESBB’s education & training program offers you different opportunities to advance. First, different ESBB webinar series cover various topics and expertise levels such as the student seminar, the educational class, the innovative technologies series , and the members’ webinar. Second, ESBB’s annual conference offers a wide variety of educational aspects including scientific and poster sessions as well as pre-conference workshops, ESBB working group meetings and networking events. Our annual conference is complemented by regional meetings and further events including our ESBB  summer school and topic specific retreats.

ESBB’s mentoring is reflected mainly by two activities, the ESBB mentorship program and the ESBB student exchange program,  both offering you (i) guidance & support by established ESBB biobank professionals, (ii) consolidation & expansion of knowledge gain and experience professionally and interculturally, and (iii) advancement by fostering networking building and interdisciplinary and internationally engagement.

While ESBB’s education & training as well as mentoring program will already add to your visibility, our awards and travel fellowships and active roles in our working groups , special interest groups and  task forces are further possibilities to promote your visibility and excel your career. Last but not least, ESBB’s job board allows you to find the most suitable job offers in the broader community of biopreservation and biobanking.

Please feel wholeheartedly welcome to join our ESBB family and to make full use of all we have to offer to you!
