Networks and Infrastructures

Active Participation and Cooperation of the Centre for Cellular Imaging in National and European Networks and Infrastructures




National Microscopy Infrastructure (NMI)
The National Microscopy Infrastructure is a Swedish infrastructure for the use and support of advanced microscopy in life science. NMI was founded in April 2016 with the financial support from the Swedish Research Council (VR-RFI) and cofinancing from the participating Universities: Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University, Umeå University and University of Gothenburg (CCI).

The mission of NMI is to provide faster access to innovative technology and competence in microscopy for the life science research community. NMI will also coordinate national and international knowledge exchange in microscopy.


Network of European BioImage Analysts (NEUBIAS)
NEUBIAS is a programme for establishing a network of BioImage Analysts, in order to maximize the impact of advances in imaging technology on the Life-Sciences, and to boost the productivity of bioimaging-based research projects in Europe. The Action aims to provide a stronger identity to BioImage Analysts by organising a new type of meeting fostering interactions between all stakeholders including: Life scientists, BioImage Analysts, instrumentalists (e.g. microscopists), developers and private sector. NEUBIAS Action is fully funded by COST (CA15124)



European Light Microscopy Initiative (ELMI)
In 2001, the European Light Microscopy Initiative was founded as the networking platform for biological imaging core facilities in Europe, now comprising 331 members from 33 countries. At the annual ELMI meeting, imaging scientists and technology developers, biologists, facility staff and bio-optic manufacturers come together for learning about new innovative imaging technologies, exchanging best practice, and meeting the major bio-optic manufacturers in dedicated workshops.



Core Technologies for Life Sciences (CTLS)
Core Technologies for Life Sciences is a non-profit association that aims to bring together scientists, technical and administrative staff working in or in close association with shared resource laboratories, such as core facilities, technological platforms and research infrastructures.



Euro-BioImaging, EuBI or EuBI ERIC
The European Research Infrastructure for Imaging Technologies in Biological and Biomedical Sciences  provides open physical user access to a broad range of state-of-the-art technologies in biological and biomedical imaging for life scientists. In addition, EuBI will offer image data support and training for infrastructure users and providers.




Swedish Bioimaging Network
The Swedish BioImaging Network aims to facilitate collaboration between researchers in Sweden working in bioimaging and related fields. The present format and responsibilities for Swedish Bioimaging will not be valid after 2017. For biological imaging, a new infrastructure, NMI, is being established with support from VR and the host universities, aiming for an operation as a national infrastructure for advanced biological imaging open to scientists nationwide. Coordination and organization of the present and proposed infrastructures for medical imaging will depend on VR’s ongoing evaluation and prioritization during 2017.

During 2016-2017, the activities of Swedish Bioimaging will focus on promoting the use of national facilities, training and networking among the scientists and the imaging society in Sweden at large.
