The BIN, is a scientific network whose central infrastructure is based at the University of Coimbra, where the central equipment is located and which it finances within the scope of the National Scientific Program after an international evaluation. It constitutes an axis of national leadership in Medical Image, embodied in several pillars: research units of excellence, such as CIBIT (with about 70 doctorates) that recorded a rating of Excellent in the last evaluation by an international panel appointed by FCT ) and the Institute of Nuclear Sciences Applied to Health (ICNAS), in terms of the production of new molecules (cyclotron and radiopharmacy) and molecular imaging. These pillars form the largest national multimodal medical imaging center and of significant relevance at the European level.

The project was designed to catalyze science production, link researchers, create state of the art infrastructures, databases and knowledge that can be easily accessible to the scientific community.
