The Microscopy and Image Analysis Platform (MIAP) Freiburg, was founded in 2016 to form a highly competitive joint network for scientific infrastructure of imaging based life science sites in Freiburg, Basel and Strasbourg. Besides managing and providing access to advanced microscopy and image analysis resources, MIAP closely interacts with user and developer:

Ø to identify actual needs and integrate novel technologies

Ø to keep pace with progress in imaging, data management and data analysis

DFG Funding

Funding line "Gerätezentren - Core facilities"

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) recognizes the importance of core facilities to contribute to an overall improvement in research infrastructure. Therefore the DFG supports the establishment of core facilities and joint use of technologies. In 2011 a new funding line "Gerätezentren - Core facilities" was initiated followed by calls launched in 2012 and 2015. MIAP, as joined network for scientific infrastructure and image analysis, has been successfully applying during the call in 2015. MIAP has received 150TEUR/ year funding for 3 years.
