Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, School of Medical Science and Technology (22/12/2019)
Dennis C Thomas, ESR14 presented B-Q Minded and the goals of the project to the Masters in Medical Science and Technology (MMST) alumni and current students meet up. The outline of the project and the goals of the project were described to the budding researchers. Many questions relating to the project and the impact it would have on the society were addressed. It was an amazing opportunity for Dennis to go back to the MMST and share his experience. Moreover, it is essential for our EU-funded project to inform and raise the interest of students in the various challenges in medical imaging.

MRtrix3 Workshop (9-13/9/2019)
The 2nd MRtrix3 workshop has taken place from 9-13/9/2019 hosted by University of Antwerp. More than 60 researchers of which five Early Stage Researchers of the EU-funded project BQ-minded have gathered together with the common objective of knowing more about this program which provides a suite of tools for image processing, analysis and visualisation, with a focus on the study of white matter using diffusion-weighted MRI.
Summer School B-Q MINDED 2019 (26-30/8/2019)
The 2nd B-Q MINDED Summer School has taken place from 26-30/8/2019 and was attended by the ESRs of the B-Q MINDED project and a few other enthusiastic young scientists too.
The Summer School was intense but at the same time fun filled, keeping the participants interested throughout the week: it started with an introduction to CUDA and a hands-on workshop for the same. The participants were split into teams and were given the assignments encouraging a healthy competition among themselves. The following days covered lectures ranging from good ‘ethical research practices’ to ‘Artificial intelligence in Radiology’. The participants were also trained on the ways of communicating and disseminating their research work which was very helpful for the budding doctoral candidates.
The Summer School ended with a grand reception, leaving a big impact on the participants filling them with a bucketload of ideas and a lot of inspiration to do impactful research.
During the Summer School B-Q MINDED our researchers introduced two 1st grade students (Senne Hoste and Mats Kuipers) with a general overview of their current scientific research on quantitative magnetic resonance imaging. Follow us in different social media and discover how the EU-funded B-Q MINDED researchers will inform the wider public about their work.
JEMRIS Workshop (17-18/6/2019)
On 17 and 18/06/2019 many ESRs attended the workshop "MRI Simulations with JEMRIS", that took place at Forschungszentrum Jülich. They had 2 full days of lectures and hands-on sessions in which they discovered the many promising applications of JEMRIS in our research! Thanks to all the lecturers and organisers, specially to Prof. Dr. Jon Shah. Check here to know more about JEMRIS.
