Quotes from Participants

"Great training, I learned much more than I expected to learn. Many useful tips and tricks around the main topic are trained."

"Perfect. There were many examples with measurement artifacts and open pores. I've also learned something about other types of visualization, not just for pore analysis."

"I thought it was totally awesome that there was only a small theoretical part and you could do practical exercises yourself and talk through the other participants' approach."
