Each partner is actively involved in teaching and hosting, and in research in the core fields of the programme.

The partners have a lot in common, but there is also a big diversity and variation in their research portfolios. The knowledge available at each of the consortium partners is sufficiently different to make the existing expertise clearly complementary.
