Description of the organisation

Euro-BioImaging (EuBI) is the pan-European Research Infrastructure project on the ESFRI roadmap which will provide access to state-of-the-art imaging technologies for life scientists.
Innovative imaging technologies are revolutionizing biology and medicine by allowing researchers to visualize, characterize and measure molecular and cellular function with a precision never reached before. Through EuBI, researchers can have access to imaging instruments and expertise that they do not find at their home institutions or among their collaboration partners. In addition, EuBI users will receive expert technical assistance and support both with project planning and during project execution. EuBI will offer image data support and training for infrastructure users and providers, as well as continuously evaluating and acquiring new imaging technologies to ensure the sustained delivery of cutting-edge services.

Enjoying the support from 16 European countries and EMBL, Euro-BioImaging is foreseen to become a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (the EuBI-ERIC) in 2018. What is more, EuBI has opened its doors to the scientific community already in May 2016 with the start of Interim Operations. This means that researchers at any stage of their career can request access to imaging technologies hosted at 28 EuBI Node Candidates (specialized imaging facilities hosting the technology and expertise).

For many researchers coming from various scientific fields, access to high-end imaging technologies is a big plus and provides substantial advantage for their research. Life-cell imaging, electron microscopy and CLEM, multi-modal molecular imaging, high-throughput or super-resolution microscopy – there are plenty of technologies at Euro-BioImaging that can be exploited.
