The second part of the Leadership Program is a 4-day workshop to give the opportunity to the participants to interact with the sponsors, hosts and other participants and to start their work on the projects proposed by the hosts.

During the workshop, a series of lectures will be given to provide the participants with a deeper understanding of the science, technology and applications of ionizing radiation and of the industry. At the end of workshop, the participants will give a presentation on what they have learnt during their project work.

The program for LP 2023 is given below. The workshop in 2024 will be held again at the University of Reims in France and will take place between 22nd and 25th April.
