APPLY NOW! The Global BioImaging project announces the first international training courses for Imaging Core Facility Staff


It is with great pleasure that the Global BioImaging project consortium announces its first International Training Courses for Imaging Core Facility Staff!
The two advanced courses address core facility staff working at Euro-BioImaging Node Candidates and at the international GBI partner institutions. The courses will take place back-to-back at the EMBL in Heidelberg (Germany) and will cover the topics of:
  • “Challenges in image data management and analysis" - Nov 13-15th, 2016 - see course program here
  • “Management and operation of imaging core facilities" - Nov 16-18th, 2016 - see course program here

The goal of the course on “Challenges in image data management and analysis” is to present the capabilities and technologies currently available to imaging facility staff in the field of image data management and analysis. The aim is to raise awareness on the current challenges in the field and to provide the course participants with a new set of tools (and references) that can be used tackle such challenges and improve their own facility’s working life.
The course in “Management and operation of imaging core facilities” aims at providing an educational program for facility staff in the field of facility management and administration. It will entail a session on soft skills training, the presentation of case studies of imaging facilities in the fields of biological and biomedical imaging as well as visits to company-owned imaging centres.
If you or your colleagues are interested in participating, please apply here: 
no later than Sunday, the 18th of September 2016
Since the number of places available for the courses is limited and in order to assign the travel grants, the applications will be evaluated and the successful applicants will receive an invitation to the course(s) within the end of September.
