ISBE has been intensively working with the Systems Biology community from academic and industry field to obtain all relevant information to understand the systems biology needs in Europe. In the preparatory phase and its efforts to gather information in order to properly construct and manage a distributed research infrastructure of interconnected systems biology centers that provide resources and services, ISBE has collected various data via numerous sources such as:

  • Community website (

  • WIDE survey

  • Audit of Systems Biology provision

  • Use of MERIL database - The MERIL database is an inventory of openly accessible research infrastructures (RIs) in Europe of more-than-national relevance across all scientific domains: from archives and statistical offices to biobanks, satellites and particle accelerators.

Our main task was to identify the stakeholders/community members and individual researchers that do TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT and are involved in technology development projects. Robert G. Cooper in his Research technology management specifies that Technology development projects are the foundation or platform for new products and new processes and thus are vital to the prosperity of the modern corporation and institutes.

The term “technology development” refers to a special class of development projects where the deliverable is new knowledge, new technology, a technical capability, or a technological platform. These projects, which include fundamental research projects, science projects, basic research, and often technology platform projects, often lead to multiple commercial projects—new product  or  new  process development.
