Training services


Euro-BioImaging offers training of the highest quality, as we have Europe’s best imaging experts under the roof of our Nodes. We coordinate and support several levels of training: general, specific and advanced. We focus on both current and future users (masters and PhD students, post-graduates, senior scientists, technicians) as well as on the staff of imaging facilities across Europe. We offer numerous courses that for instance teach you how to use various imaging technologies or analyze and process your results. When you visit a Node, we also offer hands-on training to the imaging technologies, to make sure your experiments are successful.

Full training activities of Euro-BioImaging are still under development. An advanced online module for searching and applying to courses will later become available on this page. Currently available:

  • Preliminary portfolio of Euro-BioImaging training courses (see below)
  • List of current training events (see Current activities on the landing page)
  • On-site training when visiting a Node for imaging technology access (the Node you are visiting or planning to visit will tell you more)

Current porfolio of training courses

This is a preliminary portfolio of training courses offered by Euro-BioImaging Nodes, which we extend continuously. A more comprehensive training portfolio will become available later, together with online enrollment. For now, if you wish to inquire about or apply to a course, email the contact listed. If you have any questions or wish to include a course on this list, contact info@eurobioimaging.eu
