ESRs will be part of a vibrant and stimulating international and inter-sectorial training collaboration.  The INITIATE training programme will equip its ESRs with appropriate scientific and transferable skills, through related and interdependent research projects, interdisciplinary and intersectoralsecondments, and network-wide training activities. Scientific training will be supplemented with workshops devoted to academia/industry collaboration, dissemination and public engagement, as well as the maintenance of a successful research environment.  ESRs will meet other ESRs involved in the program during the network meetings, secondments and international meetings.
