One of the key activities of the Global BioImaging project is to organise advanced training courses for Core Facility Staff on the subjects of facility management and image data tools. The goal is to develop a new educational program for facility staff while stimulating facility staff's networking and international cooperation.
The two first international courses of the Global BioImaging project will take place back-to-back at the EMBL in Heidelberg (Germany) in November 2016:
- “Challenges in image data management and analysis" - Nov 13-15th, 2016
- “Management and operation of imaging core facilities" - Nov 16-18th, 2016
The goal of the course on “Challenges in image data management and analysis” is to present the capabilities and technologies currently available to imaging facility staff in the field of image data management and analysis. The aim is to raise awareness on the current challenges in the field and to provide the course participants with a new set of tools (and references) that can be used tackle such challenges and improve their own facility’s working life.
The course in “Management and operation of imaging core facilities” aims at providing an educational program for facility staff in the field of facility management and administration. It will entail a session on soft skills training, the presentation of case studies of imaging facilities in the fields of biological and biomedical imaging as well as visits to company-owned imaging centres.
