The meeting mainly discussed a proposed road ecology conference in Africa 2019 and in what way IENE can contribute to a successful planning of the event. The meeting also included updates about supported and planned events and projects. The secretariat reported that IENE has got 7 new members since the last SC meeting and that the network now has exactly 400 members.
The SC also had the physical meeting in Eindhoven later in September (18-19) for discussing strategies and the development of the future IENE.
*In order to make the work of the Steering committee (SC) more transparent to all members, the SC has decided to regularly publish short summaries of their meetings on the website. IENE members are always free to contact the SC with requests, proposals, questions or issues for discussion.
