The European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR) was established in 2006 as a non-profit limited liability company dedicated to the co-ordination of biomedical imaging research in Europe. EIBIR has its head office in Vienna, at the headquarters of the European Society of Radiology (ESR), which is the main shareholder of EIBIR. EIBIR currently has over 280 member institutions, two thirds of which are made up by clinical departments and one third by basic science laboratories. The network has the mission to strengthen biomedical imaging research throughout Europe by bringing international research expertise together.
EIBIR has been actively involved in drafting, coordinating and managing international projects and recruiting consortia of excellence from its network members. EIBIR has been the project coordinator of several European projects, of which six have been supported by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission. EIBIR’s major shareholder, the ESR, also hosts the IHE-Europe Secretariat in its premises in Vienna.
