'Rome wasn’t built in a day’ ...and this is equally true for an European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC). Euro-BioImaging (EuBI) is a distributed research infrastructure aiming at providing open access, services and training to a broad range of state-of-the-art biological and medical imaging technologies. After almost a decade of planning, and after the start of interim operation in May 2016, many European countries and EMBL are now committing to commonly launch the EuBI-ERIC, and open this Imaging Research Infrastructure to European scientists. All countries are now invited to sign the legal documents and become founding members of EuBI. The aim of the meeting is to describe where EuBI stands, what are the very next steps, what are the perspectives for EuBI service providers who adhered to the EuBI interim phase (i.e. the EuBI Nodes), and what steps have to be taken to get involved. Last but not least, industry-related matters and opportunities will be presented. Everyone who is interested in the EuBI initiative (as a service provider, or industry delegate, or as a user) is warmly invited to the meeting.


Meeting agenda:

- Update on the status of EuBI-ERIC set-up

- Involvement of service providers (the EuBI Nodes)

- How to join EuBI

- Showcasing of new imaging technologies

- Industry related matters and opportunities

- Q&A
