Get funding to visit Euro-BioImaging imaging facilities

April 5, 2023
ERIC Funding Opportunity Nodes

Euro-BioImaging ERIC is a European research infrastructure consortium (ERIC) that offers open access to state-of-the-art imaging technologies, training, and data services in biological and biomedical imaging.

Through Euro-BioImaging, life science researchers will receive full support and expert advice to implement their imaging project at one of the facilities that participates in Euro-BioImaging. All scientists, regardless of their affiliation, area of expertise, or field of activity can benefit from these pan-European open access services.

A number of funding opportunities are available to support user access. Learn about some topic-based opportunities below and visit the Funding User Access page on our website for more:

Infectious disease research

ISIDORe is a Horizon Europe-funded project that provides free of charge access to cutting-edge technology platforms and resources across a wide spectrum ranging from characterization of pathogens to vaccine development. Eighteen Euro-BioImaging Nodes participate in the ISIDORe project, offering state-of-the-art imaging expertise to enhance basic research, drug discovery, diagnostics, vaccines, and clinical disease management. Please visit the following websites to see if ISIDORe could support your research on infectious diseases, vaccine development,  pathogens of concern, or related topics:

Cancer research

If your project is cancer related, you will likely be eligible for funding through the canSERV project, which supports research on cancer by facilitating access to European Research Infrastructures. Twenty-eight out of thirty-five Euro-BioImaging Nodes provide services in canSERV, spanning from biological to preclinical to human imaging services. The first regular calls for free access to these services will open in September 2023. Stay tuned to get more information on the next calls and related opportunities!

Please find more information on the currently open calls here.

Agroecology research

For researchers in the field of agroecology, plant biology, soil or marine microorganisms, crop sciences or related topics, funding opportunities will be available via the AgroSERV project. The project will provide researchers in the field with access to relevant RI services from a broad range of participating RIs, including a spectrum of imaging services from nine participating Euro-BioImaging Nodes. The available imaging services will range from plant-adapted electron and super-resolution microscopy to plant phenotyping and application of medical imaging technologies, such as PET and MRI, on plant samples.

The calls for funded access to services in AgroSERV are expected to launch in September 2023, so stay tuned for these opportunities.
