First Euro-BioImaging Open Call for Nodes (Part b) - Archive Information
The Call is Now CLOSED
For the archive purposes we keep this page active.
It was updated last time on April 1st 2013.
Important information for imaging facilities expressing interest in becoming a Euro-BioImaging Node-Part b
Euro-BioImaging is a pan-European infrastructure project whose mission is to build a distributed imaging infrastructure across Europe, which will provide open access to innovative imaging technologies for European researchers. The infrastructure will consist of a set of strongly interlinked and geographically distributed facilities (Euro-BioImaging Nodes) to reach European scientists in all Member States.
Euro-BioImaging is NOW inviting imaging facilities for the first time to express their interest in joining the future Euro-BioImaging infrastructure by becoming Euro-BioImaging Nodes.
Complete information necessary for the official Expression of Interest is available in the document: "Important Information for imaging facilities expressing interest in becoming a Euro-BioImaging Node-Part b".
Other necessary documents, forms and templates can be found here.
Deadline for submission of Expressions of Interest is April 30, 2013, 5pm CET.
Technologies included in the 1st Open Call, Part (b)
In this Part (b) Euro-BioImaging accepts Expressions of Interest for the following technologies:
- Population Imaging
- Data infrastructure: Challenges Framework
The Euro-BioImaging Steering Committee adopted the inclusion of these two modalities after thorough evaluation of the respective demonstration of user need and feasibilty.
Additional imaging technologies are called for in Part a of the First Open Call for Nodes.
The Expression of Interest
Imaging facilities interested in becoming Euro-BioImaging Nodes should carefully prepare and submit their Expression of Interest (EoI) to Euro-BioImaging.
Complete information necessary for the official Expression of Interest is available in the document: "Important Information for imaging facilities expressing interest in becoming a Euro-BioImaging Node-Partb".
The deadline for submission of Expressions of Interest is April 30, 2013, 5pm CET.
This EoI presents the foundation for the selection of potential future Nodes and when successful, it will lead to the initiation of a series of negotiations between Euro-BioImaging, future Nodes, funders and their national government. As part of the EoI, applicants are therefore expected to document the initial communication with their funder(s) and to provide a budget plan for the upgrade and operation of the facility for the first 5 years. Once the EoI for becoming a Euro-BioImaging Node is positively evaluated, the applicant will be in a position to start direct communication with the respective funder(s) to obtain commitments for the construction of the Node. If requested, Euro-BioImaging will support the applicant in this communication with the funders. Euro-BioImaging will further negotiate with the national government about joining Euro-BioImaging and about national participation in the operational costs.
After funding is secured and the country has joined Euro-BioImaging, the applicant will be invited by Euro-BioImaging to jointly draft and sign the contractual agreement with Euro-BioImaging. After signature, the applicant will be officially recognized as a Euro-BioImaging Node.
