End user short courses

These courses will be focussed on specific research areas, enabling end-users to network and to get acquainted with specific techniques available in the network. Each short course will last up to three days and consist of tutorial lectures, hands-on exercises and/or instrument demos. Up to 10 attendees are expected for each short course (2-3 days per course, with a total of 100 attendees for all courses), and speakers will be network members. Practical training provided through short courses is an important means of dissemination of biophysical techniques in order to improve the skills and know-how necessary for performing these specialized experiments, as well as to encourage TNA applications.
