GBI_EoE 2024

Global BioImaging Exchange of Experience (EoE) workshops are a unique open forum for discussion and generation of new ideas, where imaging facility managers and technical staff, scientists, science policy officers and funders from around the globe, come together to build the interpersonal relations necessary for the success of the Global BioImaging network.

This year, EoE is coming to Okazaki, Japan. We are co-organizing #GBI_EoE2024 with ABiS and Global BioImaging. Save the data and see you in Okazaki.

foundingGIDE – Laying the foundations of a Global Image Data Ecosystem

We are very excited to announce the launch of foundingGIDE project funded by Horizon Europe.

Led by Euro-BioImaging, the foundingGIDE project is a global consortium with 7 partners including our SSBD that aim to found of a Global Image Data Ecosystem (GIDE).
