A team of three trainees will be involved in MDI’s projects this summer

At the beginning of May two new experts joined the team when Iina Tunkkari and Niklas Aro started as trainees. Maria Jussila started her work already earlier in the spring. Interns are closely involved in our projects with, thus far, all work being done remotely.

Iina Tunkkari is studying municipal and regional management at the University of Tampere. She is particularly interested in municipal marketing and communications and is currently doing a master’s degree on the topic. Iina will be working with tasks related to the evaluation of provincial programmes in particular and will also assist in various communications tasks.

Niklas Aro is a geography student at the University of Turku. His main interests are related to urbanisation and the specific features of regional development. Niklas will work on the production of statistics, various patterns and maps and in data collection across a number of different projects.
