Benelux Association for Stable Isotope Scientists (BASIS)

Dear stable isotope enthusiasts and members of BASIS,

Best wishes for 2021! I hope you are all in good health and going strong. We all really hope we can put corona/covid behind us soon and return to more normal conditions in the course of this new year. Hopefully we will be able to celebrate this return to normal all together during BASIS 2021, most likely in the second half of the year.

Hope to see you all at the next BASIS meeting,


Also on behalf of the BASIS board

June 13, 2006 the Benelux Association for Stable Isotope Scientists (BASIS) was officially founded. BASIS originated from the previous Benelux Isotope Group (BIG), a group of active scientists that organized annual meetings without a formal organisation. BIG started in 2000 as an Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (IRMS) users group and has gathered every year since then.

Now BASIS will give a solid foundation to this group and has shifted its focus more broadly to the measurement and application of stable isotopes.

Since BASIS is trying to be a source of information for new or starting scientists in the broad field of stable isotopes, we’ve incorporated a new search tool on the new website (December 2013). You can search institutes with members of BASIS for example, but also search and filter on research topics, instruments, isotopes, etc. Also contact information to persons within the institutes will be available. The new search tool can be found in the left menu and is called Institutes.
