In the vast field of hadron therapy, building a community is essential. This session will give you the opportunity to get to know your fellow students in the interactive platform of SpatialChat and build a community for this week and beyond. Maybe you will find someone in your field of research to share your ideas and connect with? Maybe someone with the knowledge to expand your research? Tune in and find out!
Collaboration in modern science is essential and one needs to work well in a team in order to successfully deliver large projects. Join in and learn about the global networking options in the field of hadron therapy such as the ENLIGHT network, and the opportunities it provides. In this session we will be joined by an expert on the subject matter – Prof. Manjit Dosanjh, co-ordinator of the European Network for Light Ion Hadron Therapy (ENLIGHT).

Hadron therapy is a highly multidisciplinary field providing many opportunities and encapsulating specialists from medicine, medical physics, accelerator physics and engineering, radiobiology and many others. In this session, we will be asking from you to describe your profession and role within the hadron therapy field. Our focus will be to initiate discussions on the opportunities and career paths possible beyond a masters/PhD within the field of hadron therapy, and how you can continue to utilise the skills you have learnt within this field.
What were the highlights of the course for you? Was there a completely new subject you learned about this week? Did you gain a new perspective for your research? Did you make new connections to benefit your future work? Student feedback is the key for the future success of this course and similar courses; we would love to hear from you and informally discuss these and more in the final student session. We want to continue to improve this course for years to come to help benefit future generations of students like you.
