The analysis function is an important part of the SLU Forest Damage Centre. Our analysts investigate the risk for national outbreaks, compile knowledge and provide support in the event of outbreaks or other incidents.
Our analysts have the following assignment:
To analyse national outbreak risks on an ongoing basis based on existing data (e.g. monitoring data),
To produce risk maps based on e.g. geodata or to develop evidence on how to reduce risks both now and in the future,
To compile knowledge and to carry out impact assessments, identifying knowledge gaps,
To contribute to the centre by providing knowledge support in the event of any kind of outbreak/incident, thereby contributing to both external and internal communication.
