The ATBEST ITN combines the expertise of internationally esteemed multidiscipline research teams into a highly integrated network. Each of the partners has distinct research foci and technological expertise that has been combined effectively in previous collaborations.  As a consequence they are highly co-ordinated and well informed about each other’s scientific and training activities. The project has been designed such that each of the four technical work-packages brings together host partners with the most relevant complementary expertise to meet the defined sustainability challenges. Specific areas of synergy and complementarity have been identified. 

Each ATBEST partner has state of the art research and training facilities to support their chosen area of expertise. These resources will be made available to all ATBEST fellows through secondments and technical visits, to enhance the training and interdisciplinary skills.
