The training course “Making Change – Science Policy Interaction”, organised by the European University of Cyprus in collaboration with the European Forest Institute (EFI), aims to link current fire governance with the governance of other risks, covering fire, land and emergency management policy at local, national and EU level.

The training course focuses on lessons learned from various disciplines and major international initiatives (e.g. Sendai, Sustainable Development Goals, RescEU), and on the challenges of science-policy interaction and the implementation of change.

Who can join?
This course is open to any PhD candidate interested in forest fire management and to stakeholders in local forest fire management in Cyprus (max. 25 participants, selection is made jointly by the organisers and the PyroLife ITN supervisory board). Previous knowledge about fire is useful but not necessary.

PyroLife ITN Training Events provide diverse international, intersectoral, interdisciplinary and gender perspectives, organised by leading academic and non-academic PyroLife ITN consortium members.

The online training course is free of charge. For the “field module”, there is a fee of 600 Euro/participant as it includes the 40-hour course with field visits, interactive sessions, course materials, airport transport and 4 nights accommodation in Troodos (hotel with breakfast) from 10 to 14 April.
