The European Commission has officially established Euro-BioImaging as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC). With its ERIC status, Euro-BioImaging is now legally recognised as a European research infrastructure for biological and biomedical imaging. Congratulations to Euro-BioImaging for this great achievement, which will help to further strengthen imaging research in Europe!
Euro-BioImaging ERIC is hosted by Finland, and the Statutory Seat of the ERIC is located in Turku, Finland. The Euro-BioImaging coordinating Hub consists in addition of two community-specific sections, EMBL (Heidelberg) for biological imaging and Italy (Turin) for biomedical imaging. Euro-BioImaging service-providing Nodes are distributed across Euro-BioImaging’s 15 founding members: Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, EMBL, Finland, France, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Norway, Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, and the UK. Belgium participates as an observer.
The European Commission implementing decision (EU) 2019/1854 of 29 October 2019 setting up the European Research Infrastructure for Imaging Technologies in Biological and Biomedical Sciences — Euro-BioImaging European Research Infrastructure Consortium (Euro-BioImaging ERIC) has been published in the Official Journal of European Union on 6 November 2019.
