Euro-BioImaging ERIC (EuBI) is the landmark infrastructure of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI), and as such it is recognized as “a European Hub of scientific excellence, generating new ideas and pushing the boundaries of science and technology.”
Through Euro-BioImaging, researchers can have 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. Euro-BioImaging offers open access to its services to all scientists, regardless of their affiliation, area of expertise or field of activity.
The journey of the Euro-BioImaging ERIC started in 2008, when it entered the ESFRI Roadmap as a project. Since then, it went through two preparatory phases to finally start interim operation and open its doors to the scientific community in May 2016. Euro-BioImaging was granted the ERIC status in MONTH 2018 and is in fully-fledged operation since 1 January 2019.
Euro-BioImaging ERIC is a fully distributed Research Infrastructures with a tripartite Hub and XX Nodes across YY countries. Thanks to this structure, it achieves serving two research communities - biologists and medicinal scientists - as well as providing services at a true pan-European level.
EuBI is managed by its Hub Office and governed by the EuBI Board. You find more information on EuBI governance and organization in the sections below.
