Delegates of 16 European countries and EMBL constitute Euro-BioImaging governing body - the Euro-BioImaging Interim Board. By September 2016, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and EMBL have signed  the Memorandum of Understanding to work together towards establishment and construction of Euro-BioImaging. More countries have indicated their wish to follow soon. 

The Interim Board has been working on Euro-BioImaging's:

  • Governance structure
  • Legal model
  • Hub plan and identification of hub-hosting country
  • Finance plan (including the formula for calculating countries’ membership contribution in Euro-BioImaging)
  • User access policy

Currently, the Interim Board Members are working together to finalise the statutes of the EuBI ERIC (European Research Infrastructure Consortium), which will serve as Euro-BioImaging’s charter when it will be established as a pan-European research infrastructure supported and owned by its Member States and International Organizations.

The Interim Board has regular physical meetings and monthly conference calls as needed for working on the following tasks of the Interim Phase. The Interim Board is supported by an Interim Phase Secretariat for these tasks.
