Previous experiences

If you want to experience, learn and get a ‘picture’ of the state of art related to current imaging technologies and analysis tools this is the place to be. My expectations on this were fullfilled in all aspects! A group of enthousiastic teaching staff from WUR but also from abroad made this all possible for a group of 11 nationalities.
