How to Boost Your Research Project with the Support of International Research Infrastructures

April 6, 2020
, ,

Research is becoming ever more complex and increasingly requires access to state-of-the-art technologies and specialized expertise, which are not always available to researchers. Consequently, modern life science research often sees a dissociation between the researcher, who leads a scientific project, and the technology expert, who has the expertise to perform the required experiments. Academic institutions aim to fill this gap by joining forces within international research infrastructures, which allow researchers to integrate innovative technologies, resources, and expertise (e.g., in imaging, compound screening, mouse disease models, and structural biology) in their research projects.
