CORBEL Catalogue of Services

Why do we need a Catalogue of Services?

Currently there are 13 biological and medical sciences Research Infrastructures (RIs) in Europe, all of them working jointly together in CORBEL towards offering shared services for life-science.
All RIs offer services, i.e. researchers from academia and industry can access their facilities, technologies and expertise. Services can simply be consultation, access to experts, but also access to data and biological samples, use of data analysis tools, access to facilities (e.g. highly specialised microscopes) plus support from technicians and much more.

The CORBEL Catalogue of Services is the first tool to list the main services of all these RIs at a glance and it aims to facilitate the utilisation of RI services by researchers from all over the world.

The Catalogue of Services as displayed below aims to provide you a basic overview on existing services within distinct thematic fields.
You can either use the Catalogue of Services to identify a single RI to help you with your work or you can create your own CORBEL service pipelines, i.e. using several RIs subsequently.

Examples of service pipelines are provided here.

EATRIS is the European infrastructure for translational medicine. The infrastructure brings together resources and services for research communities to translate scientific discoveries into benefits for patients.

Services provided

Services offered by EATRIS include

  • support funding applications (Identification of partners for consortium building, assessment of the project plan's impact and innovation potential)
  • translational research facilities and expertise for development of novel biomarkers, diagnostics and therapeutics
  • molecular, functional & hybrid imaging technologies, preclinical models, samples, patient cohorts, GMP manufacturing
  • regulatory and Health Technology Assessment (HTA) expertise
  • advice on intellectual property issues and industry partnering strategy (innovation management)


Costs are calculated on a case by case basis depending on the service required; some services can also be provided as part of funding proposals with EATRIS joining consortia as partner or subcontractor.
For further information please contact us.

Access modes

Services performed can be offered either centrally by the coordination and support team based in Amsterdam or remotely by the EATRIS institutions.

Why work with us

Translating novel biology insights into effective interventions or medical applications is a highly complex process. It requires significant dedicated expertise, facilities and resources. We believe in your medical innovation and we want to support you by bringing together the multi-disciplinary expertise and infrastructure required for optimising your translational trajectory. Working with EATRIS gives greater confidence in the translational feasibility of your project and its impact.

Euro-BioImaging offers life scientists open access to imaging instruments, expertise, training opportunities, and data management services that they do not find at their home institutions or among their collaboration partners. All scientists, regardless of affiliation, area of expertise, or field of activity, can benefit from these pan-European open access services.

Services provided

Euro-BioImaging offers state-of-the-art imaging services through its internationally renowned facilities, called Nodes. Nodes cover the whole spectrum of biological and biomedical imaging, with an ever-growing portfolio of cutting-edge instruments. Researchers at any stage of their career can request access to over 45+ imaging technologies hosted at 33 Nodes located in 16 European countries and at EMBL. New technologies are included continuously to offer access to the most innovative and pioneering technologies on the market. 

Please visit the Euro-BioImaging Web Access Portal for detailed information about the offered services.


The access fees for each visit are individually discussed and agreed upon directly between the Euro-BioImaging user and the respective Euro-BioImaging Node as part of the pre-visit discussion during the project planning phase. The user is therefore fully informed of all costs that will arise related to the access to a Euro-BioImaging Node. The Euro-BioImaging Hub, taking care of all administrative work in Euro-BioImaging, do not charge any costs to the users!

Access support for users is announced on the Euro-BioImaging Web Portal.

Access modes

Euro-BioImaging offers open access to its technology portfolio, which is put in place using a selection procedure based on scientific soundness and technical feasibility of the project. In most cases, scientists visit the requested Node to perform their experiments on-site, being supported throughout their project by expert technical staff. Access to the image data resources are remote, online and can be found via the Euro-BioImaging Web Portal.

Why work with us

All scientists, regardless of affiliation, area of expertise, or field of activity, can benefit from Euro-BioImaging’s pan-European open access services. For most technologies, scientists are invited to receive hands-on training at the imaging instrument of their choice so that they can generate the desired data sets themselves and expand their technological knowledge. Visits can vary in length between single days to several weeks or months, depending on the project’s need and individual circumstances. Scientists interested in accessing Euro BioImaging services simply submit a short description of their planned experiment via the online application portal. Senior scientists and Node staff will offer expert advice on the project’s scope and experimental set-up to ensure that the experiment has the best chance of success from the very first visit.

Please note: Most of the RIs are constantly developing their portfolio of services, so if you do not find the service/tool you are looking for, do not hesitate to contact the RI and ask for it!
