KVI-CART and UMCG organized a successful and well-attended symposium on Medical Physics at the Educational Centre of the UMCG on August 25-26, 2014. This symposium was an integral part of the collaboration between the Osaka University, Indiana University and the University of Groningen in the framework of the JSPS Core-to-Core programme “Forming research and educational hubs in medical physics”. In anticipation of the introduction of proton therapy in the Netherlands, the symposium programme focussed on medical physics related to treatment planning, dose delivery and dose verification in proton therapy.
