EBRCN at the ASM

EBRCN has participated in the American Society of Microbiology meeting in Washington, May 18-22, 2003.
A stand has been booked in the Exhibition Hall, with a good position, close to one of the entrances to the hall.
The intention was to promote European collections to our American colleagues and explain the link between EBRCN and CABRI. The basic message was in our advertisement in the conference catalogue.

EBRCN was amongst the 34 international exhibitors for a total of 673 booths. The EBRCN "delegates" have been very busy with the 9000 visitors who registered to the meeting. Pens, CD-ROM, and demos were given and as one of the consequences suscription to the EBRCN newsletter has increased 20 fold.

New EBRCN Members

Five collections, from Bulgaria (NBIMCC), Poland (IBPRS), Czech Republic (CNCTC), Hungary (NCAIM) and Latvia (Microbial Strain Collection of Latvia) expressed their interest to join EBRCN. Approval from the EU to proceed with negotiations was received, and these were proceeding at a pace that was slower than was anticipated. The contract for expansion has just been signed and we are looking forward to meeting our new colleagues in Genova the 26th of March.
