Started from Europe
Global BioImaging is an international network of imaging infrastructures and communities, which was founded in 2015 supported by a European Commission funded international collaboration award. It started as a project built on three collaboration frameworks between the nascent Euro-BioImaging infrastructure on one hand and Microscopy Australia (previously AMMRF), the National Imaging Facility and India BioImaging.
Connecting the world
Recognizing that scientific, technical and data challenges are universal and not restricted by geographical boundaries, Global BioImaging brings together imaging facility managers and technical staff, scientists and science policy officers from around the globe, to join forces and build capacity internationally. It provides a unique opportunity for international discussion and cooperation to tackle the practical challenges as well as the strategic questions linked to operating open access infrastructures for cutting edge imaging technologies in the life sciences.
Global BioImaging organizes:
- Annual international workshops to learn from leaders around the globe in infrastructure operation and management, research policies and technology trends.
- Focused meetings and working groups to discuss specific subjects and build international collaborations.
- Training to support the professional development of managerial and technical imaging facility staff.
- Staff Shadowing programs to allow imaging facility staff to learn from leading international peers.
