In this paper we present the work carried out within INFOBIOMED, the European Network of Excellence (NoE) in Biomedical Informatics, to facilitate training and mobility in the area. An analysis of past experiences in both Medical Informatics and Bioinformatics has led to various actions. In this scenario, we have elaborated three actions: (1) a survey of the training and mobility situation, needs and actions to be taken, (2) a Biomedical Informatics course database (ICD), and (3) a Mobility Brokerage Service (MBS). We describe the use of Web Services to build the MBS, designed to facilitate the exchange of professionals within the consortium, belonging to ten European countries. The goal of INFOBIOMED is to expand these initiatives to other NoEs and institutions within the European Union.
