Euro-BioImaging is a large-scale pan-European research infrastructure project on the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) Roadmap. Euro-BioImaging is a pan-European infrastructure project whose mission is to build a distributed imaging infrastructure across Europe that will provide open access to innovative biological and medical imaging technologies for European researchers. The project is funded by the EU and currently the consortium is finalizing the basic principles for the operation of future Euro-BioImaging organisation. Euro-BioImaging will be governed by representatives of the European countries that will join Euro-BioImaging (Euro-BioImaging member states). The infrastructure established by Euro-BioImaging will consist of a set of geographically distributed but strongly interlinked imaging facilities (Euro-BioImaging Nodes), which will be selected among the leading European imaging facilities based on an independent evaluation process. By providing access to and training in imaging technologies, and by sharing of best practice and image data, Euro-BioImaging will become an engine that will drive European innovation in imaging research and technologies.
