Preparatory Phase Work Packages

Following WPs operated in the Preparatory Phase:

Technical Working Groups

Advanced Light Microscopy - General Access (WP6)
Access to a broad range of fluorescence microscopy methods across all member states

Advanced Light Microscopy- Access to Innovative Technologies (WP7) and
Medical Imaging- Access to Innovative Technologies (WP9)
Access to innovative imaging technologies which are not easily accessible
(new / under development / not yet commercially available / too expensive for individual institutes)

Molecular Imaging (WP8)
Access to optical tomography and related light microscopy methods as well as multi-modal molecular imaging in animal models and the development and testing of new imaging probes

Medical Imaging - Patient to Population (WP10)
Access to standardized infrastructures for clinical trials, image guided interventions and population imaging


Overarching technical objectives will be addressed by the following three Working Groups:

User Access (WP12)
Develop a plan for harmonized and standardized access protocols to infrastructures, services and resources

Training (WP13)
Develop a plan for a comprehensive and coordinated training platform for biomedical imaging

Data Storage and Analysis (WP11)

Develop an integrated plan for image data management methodologies and protocols, quantitative data processing


Strategic Working Groups

Essential to realize the establishment of the required framework for Euro-BioImaging the strategic Working Groups worked on overarching objectives:

Legal, Governance & Ethical Issues (WP2)
Define the legal and governance model under which Euro-BioImaging will be constructed and operated

Finance Planning (WP4)

Develop a finance plan in close cooperation with the national funding bodies in Euro-BioImaging member states as well as with the European Commission

Process Plan (WP3)
Develop an overarching business, construction and operation plan for the Euro-BioImaging infrastructure

Networking and Communications (WP5)
Communicate with all Partners and Stakeholders and integrate Euro-BioImaging into the European and global research infrastructure landscape

Project Management (WP1)

Monitor and coordinate activities of the Euro-BioImaging project and guarantee a smooth flow of information
