Projects

The network’s main scientific and technological objectives are split into three closely interlinked work packages:

Development of novel beam imaging and diagnostics systems;

 

Studies into treatment optimization including innovative schemes for beam delivery and enhanced biological and physical models in Monte Carlo codes;

 

R&D into facility design and optimization to ensure optimum patient treatment along with maximum efficiency; 

 

Note: All positions have now been filled. There are currently no vacancies available.
