The University of Perugia’s 8th Training Event – via Web

The NDTonAIR 8th Training Event has taken place on 3-5 June 2020.

Due to the CoViD-19 emergency, and the related measures adopted in many countries for the protection of the public health, this last NDTonAIR Training Event has been held via-web.

The originally-scheduled Training Event organization (see has been tailored and changed to make the web-based event being effective and productive. Hence, the ESRs presentations contained a resume of their research activities, with a close look at the collaborations they have established within the NDTonAIR consortium to perform the comparison, integration, and fusion of NDT techniques.
