Learning outcome, core skills:
Usage of GIS and/or other software tools and modelling techniques to work on an interdisciplinary topic; autonomous acquisition of know-how and competencies for scientific problem solving; ability to interdisciplinary, strategic thinking; team work and organisation of tasks, scientific presentation and discussion; writing a final report in the style of a scientific article.
Each topic will be proposed by a researcher from the Faculty of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology who will then be the principal supervisor for this topic. To ensure the interdisciplinary character of the project, a second supervisor should come from a department different from that of the principal supervisor. A topic can be worked upon by a single student or (preferentially) by a team of two or three students. In the case of teamwork, the final report must contain sections which can be attributed to one individual author.
