To address the current barriers Hyperboost combines six inter-related work packages (Figure 1), coordinated by one of the Hyperboost PI's.

WP1 entails coordination and management of the project and WP2 will deal with the training of early stage researchers with transferable, multi-disciplinary skills essential in high-end biomedical engineering, clinical hyperthermia and translational oncology (this is outlined in training).

The scientific work (schematicaly outlined in Figure 2) is organised in three workpackages: WP3 (preclinical hyperthermia data), WP4 (treatment planning) and WP5 (clinical evaluation) and these are further detailed in the different submenus.

Finally, WP6 handles communication and dissemination.
