Euro-BioImaging - Research infrastructure for imag.. (Euro-BioImaging)
Euro-BioImaging - Research infrastructure for imaging technologies in biological and biomedical sciences
Start date: Dec 1, 2010,
End date: May 31, 2014
Euro-BioImaging brings together imaging technologies stretching from basic biological imaging with advanced light microscopy, in vivo molecular imaging of single cells to animal models up to the clinical and epidemiological level of medical imaging of humans and populations. Euro-BioImaging, in close consultation with its stakeholders, will address the imaging requirements of both biological and medical imaging research communities by creating a coordinated and harmonized plan for infrastructure deployment in Europe. Euro-BioImaging infrastructures will be planned to provide access to state-of-the-art equipment as well as to provide training and continue the development of imaging technologies to be able to offer them as new services. The vision of Euro-BioImaging is to provide a clear path of access to imaging technologies for every biomedical scientist in Europe.The Euro-BioImaging infrastructure will be focused on imaging technologies grouped around different scales of biological organization, from the single molecule to the whole human organism. Euro-BioImaging will therefore develop a plan to construct and operate a set of complementary and strongly interlinked infrastructure facilities appropriately distributed across the European member states. To achieve this, Euro-BioImaging will define the legal and governance framework with its currently 22 member states and develop a finance plan in close cooperation with national funding bodies as well as with the European Commission. The key objective of the Euro-BioImaging preparatory phase project is to integrate these plans into an overarching business plan that provides a realistic basis for construction and operation of the Euro-BioImaging infrastructure. Through the combination of these technological and strategic objectives, Euro-BioImaging will be able to address the key elements of successful infrastructures: supporting research, training and innovation in biomedical imaging across Europe.
