School on Radiation Technologies
The 2014 School on Radiation Technologies will be held 7 - 20 March 2014 in Doha, Qatar at the Hamad Medical Corporation. The announcement will be issued shortly.
The WNU School on Radiation Technologies (RT School) is a leadership development programme aimed at young professionals involved in the radiation field. The RT School aims to:
- Provide selected participants with broad understanding and new horizons in the area of radioisotopes and radiation technologies
- Familiarize participants with the main issues encountered by practitioners in the field
- Provide opportunities for participants to develop a worldwide network of contacts of unique value to their current and long-term careers
The WNU RT School is organized by the WNU Coordinating Centre in London and hosted by leading institutes of nuclear learning. The RT School receives technical support from the International Atomic Energy Agency, and the World Council on Isotopes. The previous RT School was run in cooperation with Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and with the Association of Imaging Producers and Equipment Suppliers (AIPES).
