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.
