To ensure that substantial progress is made not only in this decade but also well into the future, the CERES network focuses heavily on training and collaboration activities. The CERES training initiative builds capacity to support reproducible and robust science and innovative solutions for the thorny challenges of the current and future global context. Trainees, called CERES Scholars, have been recruited from all institutions and participate in cross-network training events and have access to training materials from partners and from the CERES Core. Our forward-looking training plan provides opportunities for co-mentorship across disciplines, organizations, and nations. Their research spans many disciplines but all share a passion to improve child well-being and educational opportunities through novel use of technology.
