In addition to individual local training and secondments to non-academic institutions and other partners in the network, the ESRs in THREAD will take part in network-wide training events (nwt) which consist of three parts: core research training, advanced research training and transferable skills training. Furthermore, industrial workshops at non-academic partner organisations will give the ESRs a practical idea of the industrial challenges THREAD is addressing.
