Our network organises tri-annual events which take place at partner institutes across the UK. These events are designed to put the spotlight on areas of specialist IGT research, stimulate new ideas and promote collaborations. The network offers its members funding support for travel to these events. We also list a range of other IGT events from the community, if you would like to add your listing please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registrations for the IGT Network+ meeting are now open! Please visit our Eventbrite page to secure your place.
The event will take place on Monday 16 October 2017 at the University of Manchester, Michael Smith Building. As usual the event will coincide with the Network Management Group meeting (private) which will take place in the morning. The Network+ Meeting will then begin with a lunch followed by a series of image-guided therapy talks from academic, industry and clinical speakers.
The University of Manchester is a partner institute of our network and also the base for Theme 2, focused energy delivery and motion compensation, led by Marcel van Herk.
