The INFOBIOMED Network of Excellence: Developments for Facilitating Training and Mobility
Enhancing training and mobility in the area of Biomedical Informatics (BMI) is one of the most important objectives of the European Network of Excellence INFOBIOMED. Based on the lessons learned from previous decades of experiences in teaching Medical Informatics and Bioinformatics, an action plan has been elaborated. This plan is structured into three actions: (a) a survey to analyze and evaluate the situation, needs and expectations in BMI. (b) A Biomedical Informatics course database (ICD) containing the relevant keywords in the area, and (c) the design and implementation of a Mobility Brokerage Service (MBS) to enhance mobility and exchanges in the area. This paper describes the overall approach and technical characteristics of the MBS. It follows an innovative service-oriented architecture based on Web Services, providing distributed access to on-line information sources. This approach is being evaluated and reused for different research applications within the Network.
