The Particle Training Network for European Radiotherapy (PARTNER) was established in 2008 to train young biologists, engineers, radio-oncologists and physicists in the various aspects of hadron therapy. The aim was to offer a multidisciplinary education, in order to train a generation of experts who would be able to push the field forward. Between 2008 and 2012, PARTNER provided research and training opportunities to 29 young scientists from a variety of countries and backgrounds. Selected results from their research were recently published in a dedicated issue of the Journal of Radiation Research and are summarised in CERN Courier.
