Here's the latest Euro-BioImaging newsletter! Including exciting updates and opportunities from Global BioImaging, COMULIS, the BioImageArchive, our IndustryBoard and EOSC-Life. Read it here:


Euro-BioImaging ERIC will launch with at least 15 founding members

Since May 2016, Euro-BioImaging has enjoyed a successful interim operation; offering life scientists open access to imaging services across its 29 Nodes Candidates throughout Europe. The next step is ERIC (European Research Infrastructure Consortium) status, and this will be launched with at least 15 founding members: Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland (the legal host), France, Hungary, Israel, Italy (site of the Med Hub), Norway, Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, UK and the intergovernmental organisation, EMBL (site of the Bio Hub).


EMBL-EBI announces the launch of the BioImage Archive

With the advances in modern imaging technologies, the wealth of digital imaging data is rising exponentially. While this will lead to exciting breakthroughs, new challenges are also presenting themselves. The storage of data, its complexity and interoperability are but a few of the challenges for today’s life scientists. In response to these modern imaging trends, EMBL’s European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) is expanding its remit to include bioimaging data.


Global BioImaging has opened its international job shadowing program - apply today!

Job shadowing is a "on-the-job" learning opportunity, thanks to which technical and managerial staff working in an imaging core facility has the opportunity to visit peers across the globe and learn from them. Essentially, imaging facility shadowing involves working with another experienced member of staff in a different facility who might have longer experience, provide open user access, operate a different set of imaging technologies, and so on.


Launch of the Euro-BioImaging Industry Board website

The ability to do research depends on the availability of suitable products. It is therefore essential that researchers and imaging facility staff have a clear communication line to a wide range of companies in the field to ensure that the companies understand the trends in research thereby making available suitable products. The Euro-BioImaging Industry Board (EBIB) members consist of a range of companies in the field of imaging, joined together by their recognition of the importance of working closely with the community to ensure that they develop products that are fit for purpose.


EOSC-Life: developing an open collaborative space for digital biology in Europe

These days, the ability to exploit and understand research data is critical for the next advances in understanding of life and disease, addressing societal challenges and strengthening the bio-economy. To ensure that European Life Science remains at the forefront of global advances and to deepen research, scientific data along with its associated digital services must be findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) across scientific disciplines and national boundaries.


European Commission publishes Global BioImaging as Success Story on their website!

On December 12th, the European Commission has published the article "Global network of research infrastructures promotes bioimaging technologies", highlighting Global BioImaging (GBI) as success story on their website. If you want to learn more about this international network of imaging infrastructures, please visit also our GBI website. Enjoy the read!


A call for public archives for biological image data

With the advances in modern imaging technologies, the wealth of digital imaging data is rising exponentially. While this will lead to exciting breakthroughs (such as the integration of image data with other data types) new challenges are also presenting themselves. The storage of data, its complexity and interoperability are but a few of the, seemingly universal, challenges for today’s life scientists.


Publication of the 2018 Euro-BioImaging Industry Board Annual Report

If you work for a company in the imaging research field, you may be interested in reading the 2018 Euro-BioImaging Industry Board (EBIB) Annual Report. It'll give you a good insight into the benefits of Board membership.

There are currently 14 members of the EBIB and these members welcome all companies working in the imaging field to join the Euro-BioImaging Industry Board. 


Collaborations form at the Industry Board's Image Data Workshop

Last week the Euro-BioImaging Industry Board held an exciting workshop addressing the challenges and opportunities associated with image data. Thirty participants representing Nodes/imaging facilities, academia and companies in imaging field discussed hot topics such as FAIR data, meta data, file formats and bioimage archives. When asked about what was the most useful outcome of the workshop, one participant said "viewing problems from different angles" while another commented "engaging with the partners from industry and academia".



The Global BioImaging "Exchange of Experience III" attracted 64 participants worldwide!

The Global BioImaging EoE III took place on September 14th-15th at the Charles Perkins Centre of the University of Sydney. It attracted 64 participants representing - for the third time in a row - imaging infrastructures from all contintents!

The worksop succeeded in paving the way to ensure a sustainable future for the Global BioImaging network. Although the H2020 funding is coming to an end in November 2018, more EoE worshops are already planned and the network's activities will continue in the future!
