Data Policy - Please read!

The aim of Helmholtz Imaging Modalities is to present the Helmholtz imaging community on one page. HI Modalities offers the possibility to all scientists working on or with imaging methods at one of the Helmholtz Centers to present themselves with a personal profile page, and link themselves to their preferred modalities, applications and instruments. All pages describing a modality, application or instrument can be added/edited by any Helmholtz scientist.

Other data

Once you have created your personal profile, you can provide content for or edit the pages about the modalities, applications, instruments, labs, facilities and to some extend for the institutes. All your contributions can be edited by all other colleagues from one of the Helmholtz Centers with a profile on HI Modalities. We will keep track of all editions, and thus save your name and affiliation as provided by Helmholtz AAI at the point of time you edited the content. We will keep this information as long as HI Modalities exists.
