1st EUROPOL Workshop on Hyperpolarisation

WS1: Concepts and implementations of hyperpolarisation

Location: University of York

Date: 3rd to 5th February 2016

The aim of the first EUROPOL meeting was to inteoroduce the Fellows working on the project (and other younger researchers) to techniques and applications used in hyperpolarisation. To that end, speakers within the project, introduced their work on various hyperpolarisation techniques, to give the Fellows a greater understanding of the techniques they would be working with on the project.

The Fellows employed on the project were also given the chance to present their work. As the fellows were early in the projects, they focused on introducing their individual projects to all attendees.

ATC1: Enabling Technologies

In order to give the fellows training opportunities, several of the principle investigators give theorotical talks to the fellows. Also indicated in the program, was a practical session for the fellows.
