Compared to other Europeans, Finns by and large have rather positive attitudes towards biobanks. However, there are many concerns and hopes about biobank activities. Knowledge on biobank operations are scarce, and more information is needed. The future challenges of biobanks include maintenance of transparency in the long-term and returning data to all parties.
