Funding User Access through AgroServ

AgroServ is a transdisciplinary project (2022-2027) funded by the European Union under the Horizon Europe programme. It supports the agroecology research community by funding interdisciplinary agroecology research projects towards sustainable and resilient agri-food systems exploring topics in plant biology, in interaction with water, soil, and microorganisms.

Euro-BioImaging is a partner in the AgroServ consortium along with 12 other research infrastructures and partners in 23 countries. Euro-BioImaging is coordinating and providing open access to a portfolio of cutting-edge Biological and Biomedical imaging services through 9 Euro-BioImaging Nodes* (see map below) across Europe.

How the application process works

Access is granted on the basis of scientific excellence through a two-step application procedure to ensure feasibility of the projects and their scientific quality.

1st Step : Pre-proposals (expression of interest) - Deadline : 23rd of October 2023, at 12:00 am CET

2nd Step : Full Proposals - Deadline : 24th of November 2023, at 12:00 am CET

Before submitting your pre-proposal, Euro-BioImaging experts can advise you on how best to design your project. Based on your scientific question, we can recommend a Node from within our family and help you select additional services from partner research infrastructures. You can contact our experts at
