AlternativesToGd is scheduled for four years and comprises six interlinked Work Packages:
The work program is composed of research in fields from formulations for solid-state process to solutions and encapsulation technology, polarisation transfer in the solid-state and solution, material science, and electrical engineering.
In Work Package 1 we will develop dDNP agents that will be validated in Work package 4.
In Work Package 2 we will develop other hyperpolarisation technologies and validate the resulting HP agents in Work Package 4.
Work Package 3 is aimed at enabling the validation of HP imaging in Work Package 4.
Work Package 5 aims to disseminate and exploit the results of this concerted effort and Work Package 6 is aimed at overall oversight of the project and enabling its smooth progress.
