Board membership is open to all companies working in biological and (bio-)medical imaging field. Currently the Board members consist of a range of companies in the field of imaging, which are joined together by their recognition of the importance working closely with the open access infrastructure, Euro-BioImaging, to strengthening imaging research in Europe.

By working as a single, professional entity the Board sets its own goals to proactively drive the interaction between the imaging industry, European researchers and the imaging facilities linked in Euro-BioImaging. A close relationship to Euro-BioImaging opens the door to current research trends and usage of imaging products, the organization of joint initiatives and common lobbying activities. Achieving this close interaction between industry and research communities boosts innovation in biomedical sciences, strengthens the position of companies which can accelerate new developments to the market and builds a foundation of sustainable industry interactions.

The Industry Board runs a membership scheme to collect funding for the Board‘s activities and a dedicated Industry Board Coordinator who supports the Industry Board to achieve its objectives and organizes a series of activities to systematically strengthen and broaden the Board’s knowledge of imaging research and the two-way dialogue with its stakeholders.
