Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Euro-BioImaging is pleased to announce our first open call for user projects to celebrate the return to more normal conditions! If you have an idea for a biological or biomedical imaging project that you, your student or your close colleague could carry out in one of the 33 Euro-BioImaging Nodes – now is the time to make this project come true with financial support from the Euro-BioImaging Access Fund.
How it works:
Submit your project proposal through the Euro-BioImaging web portal between October 20 and December 15, 2021, and indicate that you want to apply for the Euro-BioImaging Access Fund in order to be considered for a grant of up to 5.000 Euros to access the imaging services at a Euro-BioImaging Node. Projects will be evaluated by a committee of independent reviewers. Successful applicants will be notified by late January 2022 and successful projects should be started before July 2022.
What the funding covers:
The Euro-BioImaging Access Fund covers the user’s travel and accommodation costs as well as access and consumable costs at the imaging facilities that are part of Euro-BioImaging Nodes. For remote access projects shipment costs are also covered. Each successful applicant is eligible for up to 5.000 Euros of support.
Who is eligible:
All academic scientists, regardless of gender, nationality, home institution, career phase, or field of interest, are eligible to apply. We strongly encourage early career researchers to apply for this grant.
Projects must include transnational access to a Euro-BioImaging Node, i.e. the applicant’s home institution is in a different country than the Node where the project is to be performed.
All applications will be evaluated for scientific excellence by a committee of independent reviewers. Selected projects will be assessed for technical feasibility and if needed receive technical advice from the Node providing the service.
How to apply:
Applicants are invited to visit our website to discover the range of technologies provided by Euro-BioImaging Nodes. Applicants will then follow the user access process described here: https://www.eurobioimaging.eu/about-us/how-to-access and indicate that they wish to apply for the Euro-BioImaging Access Fund in the application form.
