The life science community increasingly relies on RIs to access ever more complex and rapidly developing scientific instruments. IMAGINE technologies are currently at the cutting edge of physics and engineering and therefore only available in isolation and to specialists.
The project aims to bring them to the European life science user community at large by developing and validating them for service readiness, so that they can be provided as future services by Europe’s Research Infrastructures (RIs). To this end, the project will train RI staff on the operation and use of the IMAGINE technologies.
To promote broad dissemination as commercial instruments, IMAGINE will develop its technologies jointly between academia and industry promoting open innovation with key instrumentation manufacturers in the imaging field.
The scale-crossing imaging technologies developed by IMAGINE will be critical to empower ground breaking research in Europe, that is so urgently needed to address some of the biggest challenges our societies will face in the future.
