Serving excellent science in Europe by providing access to world-class facilities, samples, instruments, services and data
As modern life science research is happening across scientific disciplines, individual scientists and single labs often lack some of the expertise required to address all aspects of a research question. Moreover, researchers often require the use of different, highly complex technologies and resource collections. Access to multiple high-end technologies and services is essential for comprehensive research, but is in most cases not easily available for every scientist.
To support the global effort to tackle the coronavirus pandemic, Life Sciences Research Infrastructures (LS RIs) are prioritising COVID-19 research. LS RIs are ready and able to provide expert advice and resources to meet a variety of research needs. Many infrastructure services are still available via remote access and, where possible, the cost of access will be minimised or waived.
The European Life Science Research Infrastructures (LS RIs) were established to overcome a technology gap and to allow access to much-needed technologies in modern research approaches. They have the mission to support cutting-edge science by offering access to the latest technologies, comprehensive resource collections and technical expertise.
This website aims to be a common source of comprehensive information about the 13 European LS RIs, their activities, offers, news and funding opportunities. Their joint Catalogue of Services allows you to find the right RI(s) to fit your needs. The Success Stories illustrate how access to RI resources can advance research projects.

Brochure »For the Advancement of Science: Working with European Life Science Research Infrastructures«
You'll find out how life science research is advancing, due to access to services and technologies offered by the RIs, the collaborative work of RIs, and in particular, the creation of common service pipelines. This brochure was produced from the H2020-funded project CORBEL.
