The Infrastructure and Ecology Network Europe is experiencing a crucial transformation towards evolving from an informal network towards a Pan-European Association with international exposure. Its core mission remains to bring together decision-makers, professionals and researchers around the common goal of harmonising ecology and infrastructure. The growing dynamics of the infrastructure sector as well as the rising importance of tackling biodiversity issues have added an insurmountable complexity for any institution or country to shoulder the burden almost single-handedly.
The restructuring of IENE is equally a timely opportunity in view of recent international developments that aim to mainstream biodiversity in the field of infrastructure, elevate the consequences of biodiversity loss to the level of risk posed by the climate challenges and develop a holistic approach to infrastructure development integrating social and ecological dimensions.
Last, the restructuring of IENE is an opportunity to renew the Network’s ambitions in terms of scope and activities, to perform proactive research coordination and to be able to face our common challenges.
Therefore, IENE will federate the voices of its Member community and provide a timely and informed response to raising issues at the crossroads of increasing transportation needs and the decline of biodiversity.
In this framework, and to provide a more dynamic role to its Members, IENE launches a call for candidacies for its Governance Board and its Scientific and Expert Committee. For more details on the two bodies and on how to submit your candidacy, please referred to the attached documents.
· IENE Scientific and Expert Committee member,
· IENE Governance Board member.
