14. - 16. 9. 2022
satellite events

The 7th edition of the Global BioImaging annual gathering Exchange of Experience will have the theme of Impact & Sustainable Development Goals. This ICRI 2022 satellite event is a forum where imaging facility managers and technical staff, scientists, science policy officers and funders from around the globe come together for discussion and building new ideas.


Organiser: Global BioImaging and Latin America BioImaging

Global BioImaging is an international network of imaging infrastructures and communities, which currently comprises 11 partners: Euro-BioImaging ERIC, Japan’s Advanced Bioimaging Support, Microscopy Australia, Australia’s National Imaging Facility, Mexico’s National Laboratory for Advanced Microscopy, South Africa BioImaging, India BioImaging Consortium, Singapore Microscopy Infrastructure Network, BioImaging North America, Canada BioImaging and Latin America Bioimaging. 

Global BioImaging organises annual international workshops called Exchange of Experience, which represent key moments for the international imaging community to discuss common goals, trends and challenges in running open access imaging facilities across the globe. Each Exchange of Experience workshop has a central theme. To date, the workshops have focussed on best practices in imaging infrastructure operation, open access to technologies, quality management, sustainability, and career path for core facility staff.

The 7th  edition of the Global BioImaging annual gathering Exchange of Experience VII will have the theme of Impact & Sustainable Development Goals. It will take place as a hybrid ICRI satellite event on the 14-16 September 2022 in Montevideo, Uruguay. The BioImaging and BioMedical Imaging community from around the globe, as well as science policy officers and funders, will come together to generate new ideas on how Imaging can contribute to sustainable development.

Specifically, the event will be focused on the following main components:

  1. How to measure Imaging Impact and why this is crucial to the Imaging scientist and the Global BioImaging community;
  2. The diverse local and global Imaging community roles in the sustainable development goals;
  3. Success stories of young imaging scientists within distinct career paths and 3 Global bioImaging travel grantees will present their sustainability pitches.

The final program will be composed of reference panellists, include round table discussions and promote a high level of interaction with the audience.

This ICRI 2022 satellite event is locally organised by the Latin America bioimaging community and the Global BioImaging central teams. Everyone is welcome to join!
