Scientific Description
Euro-BioImaging is the pan-European research infrastructure on the ESFRI roadmap for biological and biomedical imaging technologies. It consists of cutting-edge imaging facilities, called Nodes, distributed across Europe. These facilities have openied their doors to all life science researchers, granting access to state-of-the-art imaging technologies, expertise and training.
