Latest and upcoming conferences


Every second year since 2010, IENE arranges an international conference on biodiversity and transportation. These events address a wide international audience and encompass a broad spectrum of topics. IENE conferences span over 3-5 days, including field excursions, lectures, poster sessions, short workshops and trainings. Conference language is international English, but some sessions may be translated

IENE General Assembly usually meets during the conference, which is an opportunity for the network’s members to meet face-to-face.

and training seminars 

IENE arranges scientific and technical workshops on the initiative of the respective host country or organisation. These events usually address a sub-regional or national audience and focus on a specific topic. Workshops give opportunities for national experts, stakeholders, organisations and authorities to meet with IENE international experts and discuss specific problems or projects related to transport infrastructure and ecology. 

The IENE Training Seminars focus on different topics in connection with the theme of IENE International Conferences, but can also be developed on an ad-hoc basis. They aim to provide evidence-based capacity building on addressing and mitigating the impacts of infrastructure on biodiversity.
