During the project duration, thirteen ESRsĀ  (Early Stage Researchers) and oneĀ  ER (Experienced Researcher) will be receiving training through research at participating institutions in collaboration with the associate partner. The ESRs will be typically enrolled for a doctoral degree program for a period of 36 months each. Each ESR will follow a multi-disciplinary research training project, experience direct collaborations and the great majority will benefit from placements with the SMEs. The main goal is to establish longer term collaborations between private and academic partners in an explicit and ambitious manner but also maximize the impact of ESR/ERs from the industrial training.

Early stage researcher: means a researcher who, at the time of recruitment by the beneficiary, has not yet been awarded the doctorate degree and is in the first 4 years (full-time equivalent) of his/her research career.

Experienced researcher: a researcher who is: 1) in possession of a doctoral degree, or has at least 4 years of full-time equivalent research experience and 2) has less than 5 years of full-time equivalent research experience.
