iMagine call for use cases - currently closed

Apply and get access to Services, Tools, Training & Support for AI-based image analysis in aquatic sciences!

iMagine provides

  1. an online platform for the development and delivery of Artificial Intelligence (AI) based applications to analyse images in aquatic sciences (marine and freshwaters)
  2. consultancy and technical support for the development of AI applications for image analysis
  3. five AI-powered image analysis applications for marine and freshwaters research
  4. a rich portfolio of aquatic images to train and validate new AI applications

Call details

We want to aid aquatic scientists (both in marine and freshwater research) in implementing image processing applications based on artificial intelligence techniques, and scaling up those applications on large-scale cloud infrastructures.

We welcome applications suggesting use cases whose scope exceeds those already covered by our existing use cases.

Run 10-month long collaborative project with you to support you in

  • AI model training
  • Large scale image analysis
  • Using the iMagine AI platform to develop and train AI models
  • Getting access to cloud resources (GPUs, CPUs, storage) to store images and to scale up analysis workflows
  • Raw data (including images) is available, but no image analysis workflow is in place yet
  • No repository is available to store data and images securely
  • Use case with little knowledge of AI and where to start from
  • Use cases in need of consultancy on the best tools to use

Our team of expert reviewers will evaluate applications according to the following criteria:

  • Technical feasibility of the project, i.e. can machine learning/deep learning methods help?
  • The task can be completed within approximately 10 months of collaboration (under terms to be defined on a case-by-case basis) between the proposing party and the iMagine team
  • What are the resource requirements of the project in terms of compute, storage and software capacities?
  • What is the potential impact of finding an improved solution for the described analysis problem?
  • The scientific data you provide, if not public, will be treated confidentially and the reviewers will sign a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement.


Please note that the call is currently closed.


Submissions can be made at any time. There are cut-off dates with a 4-monthly frequency, each followed by the evaluation of the applications submitted up to that date.
Evaluation and notification are within one month after the cut-off date.


You are working in aquatic research and are analysing scientific image data.
The raw data required to work on your analysis task is (or will be before the project starts) openly accessible under a permissive license, e.g. CC-BY, CC-BY-SA, or CC0.

The outcomes of our collaborative efforts could be shared (e.g., through the iMagine website).
