MedIm - Norwegian Research School in Medical Imaging
MedIm was funded through an 8-year grant from the Research Council of Norway, working actively from 2009 to 2016.
The main purpose of MedIm was to promote research training at a top international level within the field of medical imaging in Norway. MedIm promoted networking on a national and international level, through offering its members a range of grants and activities. Drawing on the strengths of the participating institutions, MedIm facilitated research training of a wider scope and depth than individual universities or research institutions could offer separately.
The multidisciplinary approach of MedIm can be illustrated by the range of relevant fields that were included: ultrasound, MRI, PET, CT, image guided surgery, biomedical optics and bionanotechnology. The members came from a range of disciplines, from clinical medicine and psychology to engineering and physical sciences.
Network and partners
MedIm functioned as a consortium in which NTNU, the University of Bergen, the University of Oslo, and UiT – The Arctic University of Norway were equal partners. MedIm was hosted by the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, NTNU, and the scientific director was Olav Haraldseth.
