Benelux Association for Stable Isotope Scientists (BASIS)

Dear fellow stable isotope enthusiasts,

It’s almost time! One more week till our meeting starts! April 25 and 26 2024. The meeting will be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, at Congress Centre Amsterdam Science park.

 Practical information and route descriptions can be found in the menu under Basis Symposium 2024.



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.
The founders of BASIS were Dr. Frans Stellaard and Ruud Lans. As chairman and treasurer respectively, they formed with Dr. Pascal Boeckx (as secretary) the first board.

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.
