International conferences

IENE international conferences on ecology and transportation provide a recurring interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of current research, knowledge and practical experience between the sectors of environment and transport, between scientists and practitioners, in Europe and worldwide.

The conferences aim at presenting cutting-edge research, identifying urgent questions and problems, discussing effective solutions, and outlining the paths for upcoming activities in transport and infrastructure ecology. The aim is to hold the conferences at a two to four year interval. For practical reasons, the IENE member assembly will be combined with the international conference during a conference year.

Each IENE international conference develops its specific thematic focus, but also allows discussions on a broader spectrum of topics from within the general scope of IENE.
