Benelux Association for Stable Isotope Scientists (BASIS)

Dear fellow stable isotope enthusiasts,

The first basis in 4 years, the 14th BASIS meeting, BASIS2023, April 20 and 21st was a great success, we think. we really enjoyed seeing so many well-known, as well many new faces. The meeting was buzzing from very lively discussions during the coffee and lunch breaks and the social events. Well organized meeting with a great boat tour of Ghent, very nice dinner and an excellent venue, RodeBol Events. We had a great scientific program, interesting and diverse presentation and posters. Congratulations to the BASIS young scientists’ presentation and poster award winners, Jorn and Salima!









Thanks to all the participants and sponsors for an excellent meeting!

The 15th BASIS, BASIS2024, will be organized in Amsterdam, see you all there!



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.
