The ITCR OPEN - Operations, Promotion, Education, and Networking - group aims to open up new opportunities for ITCR participants (investigators and teams). We aim to increase the impact of the technologies developed by ITCR participants, improve the effectiveness of our day-to-day work, and support one another.
