Technology Roadmap for Particle Therapy @HollandPTC

Join us in setting out TU Delft’s research agenda

 

We invite you to join us at this first event to co-determine the TU Delft research agenda on new technology for particle therapy. Learn about all the facets of the new HollandPTC initiative and develop novel technology-oriented research ideas in sub-sessions. The outcomes of this meeting will serve as input for the TU Delft Particle Therapy Technology Agenda.

 

Date and time: Wednesday January 25, 12.00h – 17.30h.
Location: HollandPTC building, Aula Congrescentrum, Commissiekamer 3
