12th Annual Meeting of the ISMRM Benelux Chapter 2020 (24/01/2020)

The 12th ISMRM Benelux meeting took place at the Burgers’ Zoo in Arnhem, the Netherlands. 350 MRI enthusiasts discussed and presented the latest proceedings in MR research of the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg. From B-Q MINDED, 5 ESRs contributed, sharing the outcomes of their research with the scientific community! Furthermore, Céline Smekens participated as a member of the organizing committee.

OpenMRBenelux (21/01-23/01/2020)

From the 21st to the 23rd of January 2020, the OpenMRBenelux received students, developers and researchers to discuss about the landscape of Open Science in the Netherlands.

The 3 days event had very interesting talks, many workshops on open source tools for MR research and an exciting Hackaton, where important projects and collaborations were born!

Vincenzo Anania and Emanoel Sabidussi (2 ESRs) were part of the organizing committee. Dimitrios Tryfonopoulos also contributed to the discussions and learning sessions!

ESMRMB 2019, 36th Annual Scientific Meeting of the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine & Biology, Rotterdam, The Netherlands    (3-5/10/2019)

During the three days of ESMRMB 2019, 11 of our ESRs got to learn more about the latest European developments in magnetic resonance imaging. Centered around three major themes, i.e. machine learning, gadolinium-free imaging and efficient MRI, this conference was a great opportunity to gather new research ideas and to create new connections as well as tighten bonds with researchers from other European research groups and training networks!

For more information about the ESMRMB conference, and the European Society of MRI in Medicine and Biology in general, please visit the society's website.

 Some ESRs (E. Sabidussi, M. Nicastro, V. Anania, M. Pinto, R. Paolella) presented their research results during the 36th Annual Scientific Meeting of The European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB) in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
