  • Medical image quality or generally interested in research skills, team-working and problem-solving for clinical practice.

The summer school will consist of a mixture of lectures and undertaking imaging research in small multi cultural and multi-professional teams, under the supervision of academic staff and/or PhD students. 

By the end of the third week each team will have prepared a draft paper suitable for submission to a journal.

Approximately 50 students and 10 academic staff will participate from Lisbon, Oslo, Lausanne, Groningen, Dublin, Stockholm and Salford.
