Gateway to European biological and medical imaging

Euro-BioImaging is a network of imaging facilities, called Nodes, distributed across Europe. These facilities have opened their doors to all life science researchers, granting access to state-of-the-art imaging technologies and expertise.

Gateway to European biological and biomedical imaging

“A picture is worth a thousand words.” Scientists, maybe more than anyone, appreciate the value of this phrase. We can often only understand what we can observe, therefore precision imaging is at the heart of uncovering the fundamentals of life. This is the central idea on which Euro-BioImaging is built: to break down the barriers associated with biological and biomedical imaging in order to facilitate innovative and world-class research. So whatever the scale of your imaging, Euro-BioImaging will give you the support to explore and answer your research questions.

Advanced imaging requires a combination of state-of-the-art equipment, expertise and data solutions. Euro-BioImaging offers all of this. Euro-BioImaging is a European-wide infrastructure of imaging facilities, called Nodes, offering a selection of almost 40 imaging technologies at XX Nodes throughout Europe. Euro-BioImaging offers the following open access services:

Access to cutting-edge imaging technologies: From Super Resolution Light Microscopy to Electron Microscopy, Euro-BioImaging offers access to the latest imaging technologies to allow you to generate innovative results.

Expert training and support: Each Node is staffed with personnel who can provide the support required to maximise the output of your research project. Guidance is available for all aspects of the imaging pipeline, from study design to image capture.

Image data management: Data storage and analysis is a significant problem considering the large and complex datasets generated by imaging technologies. Euro-BioImaging can help you store and disseminate your data and extract meaningful conclusions from it.

These days, the ability to exploit and understand research data is critical for the next advances in understanding of life and disease, addressing societal challenges and strengthening the bio-economy. To ensure that European Life Science remains at the forefront of global advances and to deepen research, scientific data along with its associated digital services must be findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) across scientific disciplines and national boundaries.On 1 March 2019,...

The ability to do research depends on the availability of suitable products. It is therefore essential that researchers and imaging facility staff have a clear communication line to a wide range of companies in the field to ensure that the companies understand the trends in research thereby making available suitable products. The Euro-BioImaging Industry Board (EBIB) members consist of a range of companies in the field of imaging, joined together by their recognition of the importance of working...
