What would Euro-Bioimaging membership mean for Swedish researchers? Workshop December 7th in Stockholm.

Since RFI (VR’s Råd för forskningens infrastrukturer) published last Monday (15 Oct.) its Guide to the Research Infrastructure, it is now clear that Swedish membership in Euro-Bioimaging is included among the areas eligible for application in next year’s RFI call (15 Jan. – 19 Febr.). Euro-Bioimaging is a large-scale pan-European research infrastructure consortium (ERIC) for biological and medical imaging, providing access, service and training to state-of-the-art imaging technologies.

We would like to make Swedish researchers more aware of the possibilities that would be opened by a Swedish membership and are therefore arranging a workshop trying to describe the potential advantages of such a membership for Swedish researchers. The workshop will be held on Friday, 7 Dec. 2018, between 9:30 and 15:30 at Hotel C, Vasaplan 4, Stockholm (next to the railway station). In addition to explaining how the organization works, we hope to give a few examples of novel imaging techniques that may be accessible in the future.

Confirmed international speakers:
John Eriksson, Turku, Finland
Silvio Aime, Milan, Italy
Jason Swedlow, Dundee, UK

A full program, with additional international and Swedish speakers, will be announced at http://bioimaging.se.
