Catalogue of Services

What do LS RIs offer the life science community?

The 13 European Life Science Research Infrastructures (LS RIs) have the mission to support cutting-edge science by offering access to their resources and services to European scientists from academia and industry.

Resources and services can simply be consultation, access to experts, but also access to data and biological samples, use of data analysis tools, access to facilities (e.g. highly specialised microscopes) plus support from technicians and much more.

Some of these services are even free to use for institutions location in the RI's member states. 

 

The Catalogue of Services, which has been developed within the CORBEL project, is the first tool to list the main services of all LS RIs at a glance and it aims to facilitate the utilisation of RI services by researchers from all over the world. The Catalogue of Services as displayed below aims to provide you a basic overview on existing services within distinct thematic fields.

 

You can either use the Catalogue of Services to identify a single RI to help you with your work or you can create a service pipeline, i.e. using several RIs simultaneously.

EATRIS-ERIC

Contact person(s): Anne-Charlotte Fauvel

EATRIS is the European infrastructure for translational medicine. The infrastructure brings together resources and services for research communities to translate scientific discoveries into benefits for patients.

Services provided

Services offered by EATRIS include

  • support funding applications (Identification of partners for consortium building, assessment of the project plan's impact and innovation potential)
  • translational research facilities and expertise for development of novel biomarkers, diagnostics and therapeutics
  • molecular, functional & hybrid imaging technologies, preclinical models, samples, patient cohorts, GMP manufacturing
  • regulatory and Health Technology Assessment (HTA) expertise
  • advice on intellectual property issues and industry partnering strategy (innovation management)

Costs

Costs are calculated on a case by case basis depending on the service required; some services can also be provided as part of funding proposals with EATRIS joining consortia as partner or subcontractor.
For further information please contact us.

Access modes

Services performed can be offered either centrally by the coordination and support team based in Amsterdam or remotely by the EATRIS institutions.

Why work with us

Translating novel biology insights into effective interventions or medical applications is a highly complex process. It requires significant dedicated expertise, facilities and resources. We believe in your medical innovation and we want to support you by bringing together the multi-disciplinary expertise and infrastructure required for optimising your translational trajectory. Working with EATRIS gives greater confidence in the translational feasibility of your project and its impact.

About

EATRIS is the European infrastructure for translational medicine. The infrastructure brings together resources and services for research communities to translate scientific discoveries into benefits for patients.

EATRIS provides access to a vast array of pre-clinical and clinical expertise and facilities that are available within 115+ top-tier academic centres across Europe. The infrastructure focuses on improving and optimising preclinical and early clinical development of drugs, vaccines and diagnostics, and overcome barriers to health innovation.

The research infrastructure offers a broad range of research services for both academia and industry across various research fields. In addition, EATRIS works with public funding agencies, charities and policymakers with tailored actions to help improve the translational research and innovation ecosystem.

ISBE

Contact person(s): Dr. Sonja Hansen, Prof. Gennaro Piccialli (Interim Coordinator), Anže Županic (ISBE.SI node), Alexey Kolodkin (ISBE.NL node)

ISBE empowers European researchers across academia, clinics and industry to implement systems biology approaches addressing how the dynamic interactions between biological components (molecules, cells, tissues, organs) leads to the functioning of living organisms. ISBE fosters project collaborations between experimental and computational teams, and with complementary research infrastructures. ISBE actively supports scientists in facilitating model-compliant data generation, making their research assets FAIR (i.e. findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) and creating predictive computational multi-scale models of biological systems based on integration of highly diverse data sets. In addition, ISBE will provide training for infrastructure users and providers to offer efficient services.

Services provided

Services offered by ISBE include

  • support to develop and exploit quantitative and predictive computational models to understand the functioning of complex biological systems
  • support in the acquisition of selected experimental data that are fit-for-modelling
  • model-based data integration and data analysis (e.g. cancer cell multiOMICS)
  • model analysis and validation
  • model-based simulation
  • support to implement tools and standards that make research assets FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) through the FAIRDOM organisation
  • training and education

Costs

The costs depend on the kind of service requested. All web-based services and simple advice by ISBE personnel is free; more extensive support is project based.
For further information please contact us.

Access modes

Access can be on-site or remote, depending on the kind of service requested.
For further information please contact us.

Why work with us

Systems biology is a branch of the life sciences that helps to obtain in-depth understanding through integrating multiple and diverse data sets in quantitative computational models. These models are able to predict the behaviour of biological systems based on experimental data about the interplay of molecules, cells and tissues in time and space. Validation and analysis of such predictions improve the model and gives insight into the interplay of system components in time and space. The success of this approach is illustrated with a number of examples.

About

ISBE – Infrastructure for Systems Biology Europe – is a coordination effort to interconnect the best experimental and modeling facilities for Systems Biology in Europe. An ESFRI project, ISBE provides stewardship and insight into biological data and their acquisition: it is a research infrastructure that empowers European researchers across academia, clinics and industry to implement systems biology approaches addressing how the dynamic interactions between biological components (molecules, cells, tissues, organs) lead to the functioning of living organisms.

It is composed of three national candidate nodes, ISBE Netherlands, ISBE Slovenia, and ISBE Italy, and a project, FAIRDOM. Each node provides different services to the user community and has its own budget, but ISBE Italy is in charge of the interim coordination of ISBE Europe.

Please note: Most of the RIs are constantly developing their portfolio of services, so if you do not find the service/tool you are looking for, do not hesitate to contact the RI and ask for it!

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 654248 and from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme under grant agreement number 824087.
