Abstract

Smart Specialization Strategy (S3) of Lazio defines smart specialization strategies to bring out the excellence of the territory with prospects of success on the global market. Chemical-pharmaceutical, biomedical and biotechnological feld is one of the 7 sectors considered of greatest interest for the S3. Key engine of biotechnology development are biological materials and associated data, stored in biobanks. However, to ensure that the research and product development carried out with that resources gives statistically signifcant and reproducible results, it is essential that they are collected, manipulated and stored using standardized and traced methods. Implementation of the recent published standard ISO 20387-"Biotechnology-Biobanking-General requirements for biobanking" is bridging biobanks toward to storage and distribution of qualifed biological material only. Human biobanks are also an essential part of the assistance and care of the citizen and constitute an unavoidable cost of the regional health system. However, biobanks organization, rationalization of their territorial distribution, completion of the process of recognition and regional accreditation, parallel to the implementation of the offer of remunerated services for biobanking, can turn the cost of the necessary preservation of the samples, into an opportunity of territorial development. The paper describes the necessity, shared by a working group represented by several Lazio biobanks, of including biobank activities in the virtuous circle designed by the S3,concretizing the framework prefgured by the S3 document on infrastructures for research, innovation and technology transfer. To allow inclusion of biobank activities in the virtuous circle, we underline the need to quickly start the process of recognition of the territorial research biobanks, to implement at regional level the process of optimization and rationalization of the management of biological samples, in accordance with the international harmonization standards and with the territorial indications of sustainability.
