The CORBEL1 Open Call invites researchers from academia and industry to apply for access to a wide range of high-end technologies and services from more than 20 facilities across 10 different research infrastructures within Europe. These include state-of-the-art offerings 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.
Access to service providers will be granted without access fee (extra costs for consumables may apply) and there will also be limited funding available for travel and accommodation. Projects will be supported by CORBEL project managers 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. To support industry projects, the CORBEL consortium also launched an Innovation Office, consisting of a well-experienced team dealing with the specific needs of industry when applying to this Open Call (e.g. regarding IP issues or confidentiality agreements).

1 CORBEL – Coordinated Research Infrastructures Building Enduring Life-science services – is an EC Horizon2020 project uniting 13 Biological and Medical Science Research Infrastructures (RIs). In CORBEL, the participating RIs cooperate in order to harmonise researchers’ access to their technologies and services by establishing a sustainable platform of aligned services that will enable faster admission to a wider portfolio of technologies and services to boost research projects.
