We are always looking for contributions to EMP News - the editors would like to hear from you! Developments in science, technology, industry, education and in training are all relevant. Cross-border or international initiatives are particularly of interest, and these can be in any area of physics and engineering applied to medicine. Comparisons between the practice and organisation of medical physics in different countries are also welcomed, as is news of activities in our National Member Organisations.
