European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research

The European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR) is a non-profit research organisation dedicated to the coordination of research projects. It aims to support the development of biomedical imaging technologies and the dissemination of knowledge. It was established on the initiative of The European Society of Radiology (ESR) in 2006 and funded by the European Commission within Framework Programme 6. 

EIBIR’s mission is to improve cooperation within the European biomedical imaging community, with the goal of improving the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases. The organisation actively supports research networking activities, common initiatives, and interoperability in the field of biomedical imaging research by providing services in proposal writing, project management and taking the lead in dissemination and communication activities.
