This has required significant preparatory work to ensure that all of the equipment and expertise required to deliver the research is in the right place at the right time. In addition, the staff have to be trained to deliver the research protocols, and the equipment has to be tested, and where necessary custom made, to work in extreme environments. This has been made possible through the generous support of sponsors, many of whom have helped adapt their equipment to meet our needs.

The development of Xtreme Everest's ongoing research strategy has been achieved with the input from Xtreme Everest's Scientific Strategy group.
