Nov. 6th, 2019 - Euro-BioImaging ERIC officially established
Euro-BioImaging has been officially established by the European Commission as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC). With its ERIC status, Euro-BioImaging is now legally recognised as European research infrastructure for biological and biomedical imaging.
Euro-BioImaging will ensure excellent research and development across the life sciences in Europe by offering state-of-the-art imaging services through its internationally renowned facilities, called Nodes. These Nodes are distributed across its 15 founding members: Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, EMBL, Finland, France, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Norway, Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden and the UK. Belgium will participate as an observer.
Establishment of the Euro-BioImaging ERIC builds on over 10 years of preparatory work with active engagement of 25 national imaging communities, the international organisation EMBL (European Molecular Biology Laboratory), and EIBIR (European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research.
Euro-BioImaging Image Competition "Research. Captured."
“Research. Captured” is an image and video competition just launched by Euro-BioImaging, designed to publicise scientific artwork: the beauty of life that research in the imaging field has uncovered in cells, tissues, plants and living beings! Participants can submit up to three images in three different categories (Biological images, Biomedical images, Videos). A Go-Pro camera will go to the best images for the the three categories. Deadline for submissions is the 31st of January, 2018.
