The collaborations take the form of regular contacts by online meetings and face-to-face discussions. All four collaborators are invited to our annual progress meetings and to the project workshop(s). They receive no financial support from the project, other than travel and subsistence to join formal annual LEIT project progress meetings in Bellaterra (Barcelona) as collaborators, if support is needed. Otherwise, these collaborations are at no cost to the ERC grant.

Sophia collaborated as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures Group (P2N) at Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2), Barcelona, Spain.
Juliana collaborated as a postdoctoral researcher. Her contribution to LEIT involved research on launching phonons by means of pulsed laser heating, to be coupled to a phononic circuit.
