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.
