ESRs gave introductory presentations so they could better understand how each of them will contribute to the project as well as how they must work together for the project to succeed. They also further discussed this collaboration in smaller groups. Cascination gave a demo of their system.
Presentations from each work package leader were held. ESRs participated in planned courses, such as learning about different image modalities and laparoscopic surgery. They were further introduced to the clinical environment, with presentations from several clinical staff and an opportunity to view part of a laparoscopic surgery.
