Tech Exchange

The Industry Board would like to invite all Euro-BioImaging Nodes to an exclusive 1.5-day Nodes & Industry Meeting on 27th and 28th October 2021.

The meeting will include two technical sessions with presentations from our Euro-BioImaging facilities and companies from our industry Board on the topic of 3D imaging using different imaging modalities. We hope to encourage lively discussions between facility staff and industry representatives on the limitations and potential of different technologies, new applications those technologies should enable and the potential for future development.

In addition, there will be a session on innovation and co-development where different imaging facilities present their model for successful academia-industry collaboration, followed by a panel discussion with panel members from academia and companies.
