16th - 19th September, 2014, University of Malmö, Sweden.

International Conference of Ecology and Transport (IENE)

The Harmony consortium was involved in two workshops at the IENE conference. The first workshop, entitled, 'I have a Dream', explored the needs of practitioners to be able to establish cost-efficient mitigation strategies and maintenance practices. The second workshop, entitled, 'Road maintenance practices to improve wildlife conservation and traffic safety', explored maintenance practices as perceived by experts from different countries and to discuss how this may contribute to the development of guidelines for Best Maintenance Practices (BMPs). An overview of BMPs was presented and the participants were invited to present their own insights, experiences or new ideas. Photos from the event can be found here. More information on the conference can be found here
