After identifying the overlap and synergies with other infrastructures and initiatives, ISBE WP5 elucidated the perspective of collaboration agreements between ISBE and potential partners for the exchange of knowledge, the provision of capacities and, harmonisation of experimental and computational approaches. Since most RIs are still developing through their pilot phases, the mode of collaborative options and agreements was also evolving during this time. The engagement and interaction efforts of WP5 resulted in a strong representation and participation of ISBE in the CORBEL (COordinated Research Infrastructures Building Enduring Life-science Services), a project in response to the Horizon 2020 (H2020) INFRADEV-4 call. CORBEL aims to enhance the integration and harmonisation of actions between all 13 European BMSRIs. Moreover, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been elaborated, with the aim to establish a framework for strategic and long-term collaborations and cooperation between all 13 BMS RIs. These collaborative agreements and their objectives and planned implementation practice, is described in detail in this deliverable report.
