How it works

The Euro-BioImaging Scientific Ambassadors program follows a structured process that consists of three distinct phases that unroll over the course of 6 months in close collaboration with Euro-BioImaging Hub team staff. 

Onboarding phase

During the onboarding phase, which lasts for approximately one month, you will be introduced to Euro-BioImaging along with other selected Euro-BioImaging Scientific Ambassadors. This phase aims to foster a sense of community and provides you with a comprehensive understanding of Euro-BioImaging's mission, services, and opportunities. You will have the chance to explore different aspects of Euro-BioImaging and identify which areas are most interesting to you and where you would like to further develop your knowledge.

Running phase

Once the onboarding phase is complete, the running phase begins, spanning a period of six months (Spring to Autumn). This phase allows you to choose your preferred activities from a diverse portfolio of options offered by Euro-BioImaging, or propose your own innovative ideas. The aim is to provide you with a range of impactful activities that align with your interests and strengths. Whether you prefer disseminating information at conferences, developing educational materials, conducting interviews with members of the community, writing news articles, informing your community about the opportunities provided by Euro-BioImaging, or organizing local events, the choice is yours! You will have the freedom to carry out activities that not only contribute to the promotion of Euro-BioImaging but also bring you joy and fulfilment.


Lastly, the offboarding phase marks the conclusion of your journey. As a token of appreciation for your dedication and efforts, we will award you with a digital badge that recognizes your contribution as a Euro-BioImaging Scientific Ambassador. This ensures that the valuable work you have done continues to benefit others beyond the program. We will collect your feedback and impressions on the process of being a Euro-BioImaging ambassador, so you can shape the continued development of this program. And your profile will stay on our website!
