It is also situated close to Stockholm (70 km) and the international airport Arlanda (35 km).

The intern will assist the Secretariat with coordinating projects and organising conferences and trainings for researchers, teachers and students. The BUP is also developing digitalised education material in which the intern would assist the Secretariat.
