The European Congress of Radiology (ECR) 2019 concluded on March 3, 2019 with a new attendance record. More than 30,000 delegates visited the biggest and most innovative congress for radiology in Europe.

Participating for the 14th time, EIBIR invited congress delegates to learn more about EU-funding and project management support while enjoying a cup of coffee in the EIBIR Lounge area.

Two important highlights for EIBIR were its Coffee & Talk session and Networking event. On February 28, Prof. Gabriel Krestin, EIBIR’s scientific director, hosted a Coffee & Talk session dedicated to EU-funded research and funding opportunities. Key considerations were presented and led to a vibrant and productive discussion.

EIBIR is honoured and privileged to contribute to scientific progress by helping researchers in the field of biomedical imaging secure funding for their ideas. EIBIR’s support does not stop there, however: EIBIR also offers project management support, and implements the successful communication and dissemination of research results.

During the Networking event on March 2, project partners and members of the EIBIR Scientific Advisory Board and Joint Initiatives gathered in the EIBIR Lounge to discuss biomedical imaging research in Europe. In addition, demonstrators from the EU-funded research projects LUCA, SOLUS, HYPMED and CoSTREAM – all receiving EIBIR support – were on display in the EIBIR Lounge to inspire researchers to reach for their own dream projects!

We can think of no better endorsement for EIBIR’s work that the comments of one attendee at the Networking event: “These support services are a dream come true for researchers and scientists!“
