Mapping disturbance risk management actors in Europe
As part of the SURE project (Sustaining and Enhancing Resilience of European Forests), a survey will be carried out to map disturbance risk management actors in European countries: which organizations are in charge of wildfire, wind storm, or biotic risk management at the national to local level? How are good practices in disturbance risk management identified and communicated? The trainee will support the data collection, process survey responses and contribute to the presentation of results. Additional tasks of the internship include processing of workshop outputs on wildfire risk management and supporting the organization of final conference of SURE “Collaboration – key to forest disturbance management in a new decade”.
Skills required: MSc studies of forest sciences or related disciplines. Experiences with Survey monkey or decision support tools is a benefit.
Traineeship location: Bonn, Germany.
Duration: 3 months

Forest Products Trade Flow Database – novel reporting tools
A novel database of forest products trade flow information was recently developed by EFI with support of ITTO. A number of predefined report formats were developed in R and they were integrated into the online user interface so users can generate reports for the countries, products and/or years that are of particular interest.
To develop additional report formats, we are seeking an interested student with basic knowledge of macro-economics and good skills in working with R statistical software. The student could work on this topic at the EFI headquarters in Joensuu.
