ELMI was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment.
The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the highest ranked scientific research organisations in the world. The Headquarters Laboratory is located in Heidelberg (Germany), with additional sites in Grenoble (France), Hamburg (Germany), Hinxton (UK) and Monterotondo (Italy). The CORBEL project aims to establish the operational framework of shared open access services for European scientists between the different European ESFRI Biological and Medical Research Infrastructures (BMS RI), including Euro-BioImaging. Through distinct use cases – from novel model organisms to genotype-phenotype predictions – the project will shape the joint services in close partnership with pioneer users to establish the framework for transnational open user access across infrastructures. CORBEL has started in September 2015 and comprises 35 partners spread over 11 BMS RIs with a total budget of € 14.8 M.
