Ten years ago, in February 2002, the ENLIGHT network had its inaugural meeting.
The annual meeting which will take place in September in Pavia will not only mark the 10th anniversary of ENLIGHT, but also the end of the first training project sponsored by the network, PARTNER.
It will be a time to celebrate the accomplishments of this decade, but also to look at the future, develop new strategies, and find ways to keep the community always connected.
The call for proposals for the KT Fund 2012 is open until 24 September 2012.

CERN and the UK’s Science and Technology Facilities Council announce the launch of a new Business Incubation Centre (BIC) at the STFC’s Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus.
The centre will provide a new technology transfer opportunity to bridge the gap between basic science and industry, supporting businesses and entrepreneurs in taking innovative technologies related to high energy physics from technical concept to market reality.
Members of ENLIGHT, the European Network for LIGht ion Hadron Therapy, gather in Marburg (Germany) for their annual meeting to review the recent developments in the field. ENLIGHT was set up in 2002 and funded by the EC in order to create a common platform for sharing data, information and best practices. Since 2006, the network continues without funding, and is co-ordinated by CERN’s Life Sciences Advisor Manjit Dosanjh.
