Euro-BioImaging works closely with a number of partners in Europe and globally. We collaborate closely with the Life Science Research Infrastructures in the LS-RI Strategy Board and with all other European Research Infrastructure Consortia in the ERIC Forum.

In addition, Euro-BioImaging has signed bilateral Collaboration Agreements with several European Life Science Research Infrastructures (RIs) with whom we have particularly close collaborations.

Euro-BioImaging also has signed agreements and close working relationships with imaging facilities and networks around the globe and can facilitate collaboration with these. For more information on our global collaborations, find out more about Global BIoImaging.

Below are short descriptions on the portfolio of our partners, including websites and contact details.
