Euro‐BioImaging is a large‐scale pan‐European research infrastructure project on the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) Roadmap. Its mission is to build a distributed imaging infrastructure across Europe that will provide open access to innovative biological and medical imaging technologies for European researchers.
15 European countries and EMBL have established the Euro-BioImaging Interim Board which is now the decision-making body through the Interim Phase toward construction: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Israel, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, The Netherlands, United Kingdom.

German Roadmap for Research Infrastructures
- [2016-01-15] A proposal for a distributed and coordinated national infrastructure offering open access to very advanced bioimaging technologies has been submitted to the Federal Ministry of Research and Education (BMBF). With this document, the "German BioImaging-Research Infrastructure" seeks inclusion into the National Roadmap for Research Infrastructures. The GerBI-RI proposal is available from our restricted download area. The password to complete the download can be requested from the GerBI office via email.
- [2015-10-06] A meeting took place in Konstanz in preparation for a proposal to include imaging into the German Roadmap for Research Infrastructures (Minutes)
- [2013-04-30] The evaluation by the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat) and the decision by the BMBF on the call for a National Roadmap for Research Infrastructures were published. The German biological and medical imaging communities had submitted a proposal for a distributed and coordinated national infrastructure for advanced imaging technologies (German Euro-BioImaging, GEBI). In the Council's report, GEBI received an excellent evaluation with 19 of 20 possible evaluation points and therefore is evaluated as best research infrastructure proposal in comparison with the other 7 proposals for the roadmap. Nonetheless, the BMBF did not include GEBI in the German Roadmap for Research Infrastructures (BMBF press release).
