The H2020 cluster project CORBEL, Coordinated Research Infrastructures Building Enduring Life-science Services, is an initiative of thirteen new biological and medical research infrastructures (BMS RIs), which together aim to create a platform for harmonised user access to biological and medical technologies, biological samples and data services required by cutting-edge biomedical research.

CORBEL will boost the efficiency, productivity and impact of European biomedical research. CORBEL has now published the Catalogue of Services, offering an overview on what kind of services (access to samples and technologies, data, tools, expertise etc.) can be accessed from the participating research infrastructures.

Researchers from academia, clinics and industry working on a complex project often do not have access at their home institution to the cutting-edge technologies they would need to boost their research. Especially these researchers can benefit from utilising a research infrastructure.
The catalogue includes state-of-the art services from the fields of advanced imaging technologies, bio-banking, clinical trials, databases, functional genomics, marine model organisms, microorganisms, highly pathogenic microorganisms, plant phenotyping, screening and medicinal chemistry, structural biology, systems biology and translational research.
Searching the catalogue, researchers can obtain an overview on available services and receive information on access modes, costs and much more. Planning a complex research project it is also possible to use services from different research infrastructures subsequently. Examples of such service pipelines are given on the website.
CORBEL encourages researchers to utilise the Catalogue of Services and follow the activities on the website.
