CORBEL offers Open Call for biomedical research projects

Friday, 27 July 2018

In its second Open Call CORBEL (Coordinated Research Infrastructures Building Enduring Life-science services ) invites researchers from the biomedical field to apply to access technologies and services offered by more than 20 facilities from 10 different research infrastructures (RIs) across Europe, including INFRAFRONTIER. The CORBEL funding is not meant as a source for regular research costs and will not be given to successful applicants directly. Instead, costs of up to €5,000 for travel to partner sites will be reimbursed and access to service ptoviders will be granted without access fee. Extra costs may apply for consumables.

Selected projects will gain unprecedented opportunities to utilise a wide range of state-of-the-art offers from the fields of advanced imaging, biobanking, clinical and translational research, curated databases, marine model organisms, mouse mutant phenotyping, high-throughput screening, structural biology as well as systems biology. Projects will be supported at every stage, with CORBEL project managers at hand to help scientists navigate between different service providers and exploit the full potential of the offers available. Crucially, data that is generated stays with the scientist and can be used for publication.

CORBEL is a Horizon2020 project uniting 13 European Biological and Medical Science RIs. CORBEL aims to harmonise access to the resources offered by these RIs, joining their various expertise across the range of life science disciplines. This is of particular relevance for advanced interdisciplinary research projects: They often rely on a variety of different technologies and services and face the challenge that resources are not always easily available.
