From 30 August to 2 September, the IENE (Infra Eco Network Europe) conference took place in Lyon (France). Florian Heigl presented the project Roadkill as Citizen Science Project and first results.
The IENE is a network of experts active in the field of ecology and linear transport infrastructure. This network is non-profit, non-governmental and non-political.
The title of this year's event was "Integrating transport infrastructure with living landscapes" to highlight how much infrastructure, from roads to airports to power lines, is part of the landscape. On the conference website you can get very detailed information about the conference, the presentations, posters and workshops. The conference was characterized by topics such as "What do functioning green bridges look like", "What new technical developments are there in the field of wildlife accident prevention", "What influence do roads have on biodiversity" and many more. The difference to many other conferences is that here scientists, officials from ministries, engineers and company employees meet to discuss and learn from each other.
