BBMRI-ERIC is excited to be participating in the CORBEL 2nd Open Call for research projects. CORBEL is looking for innovative research projects at the interface between different biomedical and life science fields requiring service provision from multiple research infrastructures.
Are you working on a complex research project in need of multiple, different technologies?
Would you benefit from access to state-of-the-art research infrastructures and services that are not available in your current research environment?
Would integrated access to multiple research infrastructures take your research project to the next level?
If the answer is YES, participation in the CORBEL Open Call can help to boost your results!
For the second time, the CORBEL partners launched an Open Call and thereby offer to all academic and industrial scientists in Europe the chance to accelerate their research project. Through defined pipelines, called Access Tracks, high-end technologies and services offered by more than 20 CORBEL partner institutes from 10 participating research infrastructures, including BBMRI-ERIC, will be made accessible to interested scientists.
Successful applicants will have the unique opportunity to access multiple research infrastructures with just one application. Available services are grouped into five different Access Tracks:
1. Genotype-to-phenotype analysis
2. Predictive systems pharmacology for safer drugs and chemical products
3. Structure-function analysis of large protein complexes
4. Marine metazoan developmental models
5. Complex multimodal biomarker profiling
Importantly, the grouping of services into Access Tracks is flexible, and also alternative combinations can be requested! Costs for travel to partner sites will be reimbursed by CORBEL and access to service providers will be granted without access fee (extra costs for consumables may apply). Projects will be supported at every stage, with CORBEL project managers helping scientists to navigate between different service providers and exploit the full potential of the offers available.
Proposal submission for the 2nd CORBEL Open Call for research projects is now open. For more information, please visit the project website.
CORBEL – Coordinated Research Infrastructures Building Enduring Life-science services – seeks to harmonise access to European research infrastructures joining their various expertise across the range of life science disciplines. This facilitated access is of particular relevance for advanced interdisciplinary research projects, which could highly benefit from the integration of several specialist services and technologies such as biobanking, clinical and translational research, curated databases, systems biology, mouse mutant phenotyping, marine model organisms, advanced imaging technologies, high-throughput screening or structural biology.
