Five dedicated EIBIR sessions will take place during ECR 2022 from July 13-17, 2022.

Seize this opportunity to learn about our successful research projects, ask the experts about artificial intelligence in medical imaging, image collections, safety in radiology, or new directions in pre-clinical imaging and learn how to succeed in the European funding landscape.

Visit the EIBIR Lounge to talk to us about funding opportunities for imaging research.

We look forward to seeing you at ECR!
