Fundamental to the NIF model is collaboration. Our partners are essential to our success, from sharing knowledge and expertise to co-funding arrangements, we are proud to have a variety of national and international partners.
NIF and Microscopy Australia are partners in Global BioImaging Project, which facilitates access to a global network of imaging platforms; enables exchange of experience in technology development; explores standardisation of access protocols, data formats and processing protocols. Such standardisation, together with the sharing of data, facilitates transglobal collaborative discovery projects with translation to multi-centre clinical trials.
NIF is a member to a Memorandum of Understanding with Euro-BioImaging. Euro-BioImaging is a platform for a distributed, open-access research infrastructure with a complete range of state-of-the-art technologies and training in biological, molecular and medical imaging.
In addition to our Delivery Partners (‘Nodes‘), NIF runs on a co-investment model highlighting local backing for imaging research infrastructure. Co-investing in an NCRIS project provides financial partners with a cost-effective mechanism to meet their research infrastructure or broader policy implementation needs.
