The European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research
The European Commission allocated over € 17 billion for transnational projects in the 6th Framework Programme (FP6) for research and technological development, 2003 – 2006.
The EIBIR Project
The European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR) was established in January 2006 as a non-profit, limited liability company, dedicated to the co-ordination of research in Europe, under the support of a FP6 grant under the Life Science programme. The project was supported by an EU financial contribution of €200 000, it commenced in July 2007 and concluded in July 2009. There were 13 project partners from key research institutes across Europe, and a representative from each makes up the EIBIR Scientific Advisory Board.
During its project lifetime EIBIR developed into a very active coordinating institution in the field of biomedical imaging research. It successfully achieved its aim of establishing a network of clinical and non-clinical institutions interested and working in the field of biomedical imaging. The sucess of the project is evident today in the active organisation and EIBIR’s extensive member network.
