The MOlecular-Scale Biophysics Research Infrastructure (MOSBRI) enables ambitious integrative multi-technological studies of biological systems at the crucial intermediate level between atomic-resolution structural descriptions and cellular-scale observations.

Its consortium of 2 companies and 13 academic centres of excellence from 11 countries gathers a wide complementary panel of cutting-edge instrumentation and expertise, leveraging barriers that currently hinder the optimal exploitation of molecular-scale biophysical approaches in the fields of biomedicine, biotechnology, biomaterials and beyond. MOSBRI provides European academic and industrial researchers with a one-stop shop Trans-National Access to the latest technological developments in advanced spectroscopies, hydrodynamics, thermodynamics, real-time kinetics and single molecule approaches.

It will play a major role in standardization and policy-making in the field by:

  • carrying out Joint Research Activities to develop innovative methodologies
  • designing robust quality control guidelines and FAIR-compatible archiving formats and databases
  • engaging with instrumentation, pharma, biotech and CRO SMEs

Networking activities will multiply the impact of MOSBRI, by efficiently sharing and disseminating theoretical and practical knowledge through training events in Europe, contributing to:

  • the emergence of a highly qualified new generation of scientists
  • outreach to scientific communities currently unaware of the full potential of the integrated use of molecular-scale biophysics tools

MOSBRI is complementary to related infrastructures including INSTRUCT-ERIC and iNEXT-Discovery, and will help creating a strong cross-fertilizing ecosystem with leveraging effects for European science. It represents a unique opportunity for Europe to remain at the forefront in this competitive field, thereby contributing significantly to the acceleration of discoveries beneficial for OneHealth.

ENRIITC your Coffee – The MOSBRI project: Challenges for the sustainability of INFRAIA projects after Horizon 2020

ENRIITC is the European Network of Research Infrastructures and Industry for Collaboration. They are 11 Partners and 60+ Associates working together to establish a pan-European network of Industrial Liaison and Contact Officers (ILOs/ICOs) to improve the RI-industry cooperation and boost the innovation ecosystem in Europe.

This event is an interactive session where Patrick England and Liliana Avila Ospina will present MOSBRI and discuss briefly about the sustainability of INFRAIA projects after H2020 funding.

Wednesday, 19th October 2022 from 09:00-12:00

The European Science Foundation, the MOSBRI Project, the VITALISE Project and EuroPlanet are co-organising a side event within the framework of the ICRI 2022 Conference in Brno regarding “Long-term sustainability of small and mid-scale distributed RI projects”. The event will take place on Wednesday, 19 October 2022 from 9:00-12:00am in a hybrid form, with in-person attendance capacity and unlimited online participation spots.

Four pan-European INFRAIA projects and organisations, i.e., the European Science Foundation, the MOSBRI project, the VITALISE project and EuroPlanet, are co-hosting the “Long-term sustainability of small and mid-scale distributed RI projects” hybrid side event of the ICRI 2022 Conference.
