Get to know Katja Claus: what makes her happy?

Just recently a webcam has been installed at the building site of the future Asselsche Heide wildlife crossing. This site will be visited during the fieldtrip nr 7 (Defragmentation through ecological corridors and passage ways).

Biesbosch National Park is the largest tidal freshwater marsh of Europe. It is a rare habitat and well protected these days as Natura 2000-area. The difference between high and low tide used to be more than two meters. About fifty years ago this changed drastically due to the Deltaworks – a large-scale project that encompassed the construction of dams and sluices in coastal estuaries - and now the difference is only 70 cm.

We are happy to welcome several keynote speakers at the IENE 2018 conference. Tony Clevenger is one of them. He obtained his undergraduate degree at the University of California, Berkeley. Long-term research along the Trans-Canada Highway.

Come to the special session about collaboration between NRA's.

It will be held on the first day of the IENE 2018 Conference, 11th September.

The Organization Committee is pleased to announce that Stefan Leiner, Head of Unit Biodiversity of the DG Environment, European Commission, will provide a presentation at the session and Steve Philips, Secretary-General of CEDR, will act as the session’s moderator.


New feature of the IENE 2018 conference is the use of a conference app in which participants, speakers and sponsors can contact each other. 

Our conference venue, Evoluon, is located in the area of Eindhoven nowadays called Strijp-S. A former Philips industrial plant is turned into a vibrant living lab.

IENE has a very broad worldwide network of highly motivated and committed professionals who work at the interface of traffic infrastructure and the surrounding nature. It's good to see that also at the IENE 2018 Conference members from all over the world will join us in Eindhoven in September. 

Hop on the boat!

An excursion highlighted: Defragmentation of the Naardermeer marshes

During this excursion we will show you a great variety of complex problems and measures we have taken here and we will inform you about the cooperation between governments, NGO’s and volunteers.

We are happy to welcome several keynote speakers at the IENE 2018 conference. Ignace Schops, a Belgian environmentalist, is one of them.
