This course combined state-of-the-art lectures by specialists and abstract presentations by participants with hands-on training in the laboratory. Throughout the highly interactive educational activity, participants were encouraged to raise questions and comment on the presented information and instructions. Hands-on training proved to be a particular highlight of the course - the students worked in small groups of up to ten persons and were guided by local tutors. The hands-on sessions offered both a basic and a human track with various sessions each to allow participants a fully immersive educational experience.
