Projects can be set regionally or globally, in developed or developing country contexts (student scholarship and visa conditions permitting). Outcomes propose practical, integrated, best-practice solutions under these conditions.

The terms of collaboration are flexible. Options include voluntary or paid placements, provision of in-kind facilities and services, financing of project costs, or fixed-value sponsorship.
