World of Imaging

As Euro-BioImaging has specifically been established to enable open access to cutting-edge imaging technologies, we are obviously interested in how open access and open science are being developed globally. In this series, Euro-BioImaging visits open access imaging infrastructures around the world and brings important insights to the community.

Our first stop is in South Africa, where a small Euro-BioImaging team had the privilege and opportunity to see an excellent example of open access being established in Africa. Read the full story here.
