Changes-ITN People The CHANGES network intends to employ 12 Early Stage Researchers (each for 36 months) and 3 Experienced Researchers (for 24 months). The consortium fully exploits the complementary expertise of the different teams through a plan of secondments of ESRs and joint appointments of ERs. As a result of this, the appointed ESR/ERs will sample diverse aspects of the field of hazard and risk assessment and thereby develop a well-rounded training, and will also be actively involved in one of the private partners. In addition, this will actively promote transfer of knowledge within the network.
