All young ESMI Groups are part of the ESMI, initiated and run by dedicated early-career imaging scientists. It is a “bottom-up” initiative promoting the formation of a strong national network of ECR’s to provide an informal, easy entry into the broader, international environment of the ESMI.

All yESMI Groups are strongly connected. Besides their individual activities, they organize common activities like yESMInars or a dedicated mentoring programme. The groups are strongly connected and they all meet annually at the EMIM. Currently eight national young ESMI are active:
