Launch of the Euro-BioImaging Interim Board


During the meeting on March 31st, 2014, delegates from 11 European countries and the EMBL enacted the Euro-BioImaging Interim Board. The Board has elected Rowan McKibbin (Head of Strategy for Genomics, Data and Technologies, BBSRC, UK) as its chair and Marcin Ciuk (Head of the Neurobiology Centre, Nencki Institute of the Polish Academy of Science, PL) as the vice-chair.

The Interim Board will work on all issues relevant to the construction of Euro-BioImaging and enable its implementation.  As soon as the Interim Board has agreed on the formal aspects of the Euro-BioImaging infrastructure model, the construction and operation phase can start.

The next Euro-BioImaging Interim Board meeting is scheduled on May 19th, 2014 in Warsaw, Poland.
