France-BioImaging opens a call for scientific projects, for any users outside France-BioImaging who would like to use the infrastructure. Access requests can be submitted electronically at any time. They are reviewed every two months by the Executive Board of France-BioImaging.
The eligibility criteria are:
1) the project requires imaging technology unaccessible at proximity
2) the project must be based on an innovative or rarely available technology and / or
3) requires a specific expertise (methodology / technology / biotechnology knowledge, animal facility, data processing …) and / or
4) a suitable scientific environment, possibly collaborative (example: neurosciences, cancer research… )
After acceptance, the user will have access to the FBI-institution of his choice or will be offered a more suitable site. France BioImaging will co-finance selected projects on travel expenses, accommodation and partly on experimental costs.
