Training plan and reports

This deliverable will define the specific plan and methodology of the training activities. It will also include reports of the training events (methodology of training, content, programme, evaluation etc). For each ESR, a specific report will be provided with the trainings in which s/he participated. Among the training events, the following are listed: - Participation in Varenna Fermi Summer School: ESR of Colldense together with potential ESRs are taking part in the training provided by the 1st class world researches during 10 days at Fermi School in Varenna (M6) (UniVie) - Participation in Molecular Simulations School: ESRs of Colldense are taking part in the training in computer simulations provided during 10 days at Molecular Simulation School in the Netherlands (M13) (JSI). - Participation in joint Espresso/Statistical Mechanics School: ESRs of Colldense are taking part in the training in statistical physics and molecular dynamics simulations in ESPResSo provided by the University of Vienna (M29) (JSI). Personal Career Development Plans (CDP) will be formulated at the beginning of the employment by the supervisor and ESR which will outline planned relevant research objectives and training activities (technical as well as transferable skills). This plan will be annually updated or whenever there are changes. Colldense will report on this plan annually (progress report, midterm/periodic report, final periodic report). Reports on events will be produced.
