EIBIR gratefully acknowledges the support of its Industry Partners. Their support has allowed us to provide start-up aid to many new initiatives and to dedicate resources to supporting numerous project applications.
Since its establishment in 2006, EIBIR has received support payments from a core group of industry partners. Bayer Schering Pharma, Bracco, GE Healthcare, Philips and Siemens were the founding members of the EIBIR Industry Panel. In the first two years they each contributed € 50,000 to support the establishment of EIBIR, which was subsequently reduced to € 35,000 per company from 2008.
In 2010 the Industry Partnership model was reviewed and there are currently three Industry Partner Packages available which offer industry partners a range of services according to the varying financial commitment.
