The objective of EMIL is the creation of a Network of Excellence of European Molecular Imaging Laboratories for early stage diagnosis as well as therapeutic and prognosis assessment of cancer.
The general objectives of EMIL are:
(i) To coordinate the current effort in Molecular Imaging of Cancer in Europe by merging leading groups from universities, research centers and SMEs into ONE virtual excellence center;
(ii) To advance Molecular Imaging of Cancer to the scientific, technical and economical status that should be expected from its value for European citizens;
(iii) To act as a leverage for a strong technological development that can be fueled through specific research and development projects.
The Joint programme of activities is based on :
Integration activities :Sharing facilities and equipments : the Molecular Imaging Training Centers; Exchange and mobility of personnel; Integration of SMEs in the EMIL network
A joint programme of research activities with two dimensions for integration HORIZONTAL integration = tools for molecular imaging of cancer (Imaging technology; Imaging probes; Animal engineering) and VERTICAL integration = cancer imaging applications (Early diagnostic imaging; Followup of guided therapies; Imaging drug development).
Dissemination activities : Training.and Education; Communication; Management of common knowledge and Intellectual Property Rights.
EMIL will reach durable integration into the European Research Area through intellectual excellence, strong and durable cooperation with SMEs, Education activities, scientific management, and a research programme based on existing tools and ambitious objectives : assemble the critical mass necessary for international leadership, bridge gaps in the innovation system and raise health expectancies of the European population to the highest levels.
