The ESRs will be encouraged to interact with the local research group at their host. This would include research forums, national workshops and meetings. The ESR will bring this local perspective when seconded to work at the site of his/her collaborating participant. Similarly, perspectives acquired during this secondment can be brought back to the host institution and shared with fellow researchers.

Modules appropriate to the ESRs may also be offered locally. By combining local research expertise with appropriate modules in specialist topics, the ESRs will acquire all of the requisite skills necessary to conduct the high-level research necessary to achieve their PhD. Four beneficiaries are located at Universities with strong post-graduate programs that cover on-going specialist modules, which are listed below (equivalent ECTS-credits appears in brackets).
