As revealed in its report, it has promoted design and launching of over 200 joint international biobank studies and resulted in an overall quality improvement of such studies.

The biobank databases have been linked with population registries for updating on vital status and estimation of population representativeness of data, as well as with nationwide cancer registries to generate cancer incidences and tables with total number of prospectively occurring cancer cases in all participating biobanks.
