What is EMBRC?
The European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC) is a European 'research infrastructure' that provides researchers and companies with access to marine organisms and the facilities to study them, including experimental facilities and technological platforms.
We enable researchers to better understand our impact on the oceans and ensure the sustainable use of marine resources.
EMBRC offers a variety of services supporting both fundamental and applied research activities to explore marine biodiversity. Services are provided by 45 sites in our 9 member countries.
Our member countries offer a wealth of marine biological laboratories and stations dedicated to the investigation of marine organisms and ecosystems. By making their services and resources available to European and international research/innovation communities, we hope to push the frontiers of marine biological science and promote marine solutions to address societal issues (eg global warming, food shortages) and develop novel products, drugs and treatments.
EMBRC currently has 9 member countries: Belgium, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain and the UK.Read more
