OPEN CALL FOR NODES

 

Important information for imaging facilities
expressing interest in becoming a Euro-BioImaging Node

 

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", which should be DOWNLOADED HERE together with other necessary documents, forms and templates.

Deadline for submission of Expressions of Interest is April 30, 2013, 5pm CET.


 

 

Technologies included in the 1st Open Call, Part (a)

The 1st Open Call for Euro-BioImaging Nodes – Expression of Interest consists of 2 parts: Part (a) and Part (b). Part (a) of the Call is open from now until April 30, 2013.  Part (b) of the Open Call will be announced soon.

In this Part (a) Euro-BioImaging accepts Expressions of Interest for the following technologies:

  1. Biological Imaging:

    • Multi-modal Advanced Light Microscopy
    • Correlative Light-Electron Microscopy
    • Functional Imaging
    • High-throughput Microscopy
    • Mesoscopic Imaging
    • Super Resolution Microscopy
  2. Multi-Modal Molecular Imaging
  3. Medical Imaging

    • High-Field MRI
    • Phase Contrast Imaging
    • MRI-PET

 

Additional imaging technologies are called for in a ‘Part (b)’ of the 1st Open Call for Nodes.

The technologies listed above and additional technologies will be included in future Euro-BioImaging calls for Nodes that are foreseen annually after the end of the Euro-BioImaging Preparatory Phase.

 

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", which should be DOWNLOADED HERE together with other necessary documents, forms and templates. 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.

 

* Euro-BioImaging PM stands for Euro-BioImaging Preparatory Phase Project Management.
