MIUR International Project EuBI (Euro-BioImaging)

Euro‐BioImaging is a large‐scale pan‐European research infrastructure project on the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) Roadmap. After a Preparatory Phase (2010-2014) Euro-BioImaging is now in the interim phase, with representatives of 14 countries working together towards the implementation of the infrastructure and governing Euro-BioImaging development through an Interim Board.

The Interim Board coordination, based on three Hubs hosted by Finland (University of Turku), Italy (University of Torino) and Germany with the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) as International Organization, ratified the nomination of 28 imaging facilities as first generation EuBi nodes. This was the first step towards the institution of Euro-BioImaging as a new European Infratructure Consortium, that will provide access to imaging facilities of many users from a wide research community in the life science.
The infrastructure will become operational in 2017, with the establishment of EuBi  ERIC. Finland will host the statutory seat, Italy will host the community site for medical imaging, EMBL will coordinate the biological imaging. The EuBi web Access Portal will act as central point for accessing all the imaging facilities.

Other Italian public research institutions involved

Besides Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), and University of Torino, several other Institutions are appointed as Italian “nodes” candidates of EuBi.For more details, view the related document.

Other organizations and stakeholders involved

Several University and Research institutions are involved in EuBi, representing imaging Nodes of all participating countries. For more details on hosting Institutions inside the Euro-BioImaging Node Candidates, view the related document.

Strategic objectives

The aim of EuBi is to provide physical and virtual access to cutting edge imaging technologies  in the  framework of multinational research in the life science within the European Research Area. Access to imaging facilities (Nodes) will be open to scientists from all over the world and will be based on competition, to favour excellence, innovation and integration at the European level.
The transnational research infrastructure will constitute as an ERIC in 2017.
