Global BioImaging Events


Within the Global-BioImaging project a number of international events targeting Imaging Facility staff, Laboratory managers and specialist technical officers will be organized.

The "Exchange of Experience" workshops will target best practices in the areas of open access to Imaging Infrastructures, user training, facility operations, quality management and cutting-edge imaging technologies. 

The training programs on RI operations and Image Data management will offer to international imaging facility staff the opportunity to access an educational program on research infrastructures' management operation that, due to the novelty of the facility management profession, are still often scarcely available.

Finally, the "Exchange of People" programs will allow exchange visits of facility operational staff such as laboratory managers or specialist technical officers to infrastructure sites all over the world. Advanced Imaging Facilities, including Euro-BioImaging Nodes, will host managers, scientists and technicians for a minimum of two weeks during the implementation of each Shadowing program.
