About the Conference

The International Conference on Natural-Infrastructure Connectivity — organised by the TRANSGREEN project, funded by the Interreg Danube Transnational Programme — will gather over 100 scientists, scholars and engineers from the Danube Region working on the themes of green and grey infrastructure and spatial planning. The event will focus on fostering cooperation between the participants by presenting and discussing ongoing research activities and sharing best practices in order to develop adequate policies throughout borders and sectors for safer and more environmentally-friendly road and rail networks in the mountainous regions of the Danube Basin.

Moreover, we are welcoming interested stakeholders who would like to present their research and projects within any of our parallel sessions, as well as interested institutions and projects who would like to submit their posters to be showcased during the event.

The conference topics are:

  • Spatial planning practice/GIS/policy
  • Road planning practice/GIS/policy
  • Environmentally-friendly road and rail transport solutions
  • Road safety
  • Road kill registration/monitoring
  • Elements of Green Infrastructure in road construction
  • Ecological corridors

Moreover, on 1-2 April 2019, the 9th Carpathian Convention Working Group on Sustainable Transport will also be held. For this opportunity, a limited number of spots are available for any interested party that would like to participate with an ‘Observer’ status to this meeting.

About the TRANSGREEN project

The TRANSGREEN project, funded by the Interreg Danube Transnational Programme and implemented by partners based in the Danube region, aims to contribute to safer and environmentally-friendly road and rail networks in mountainous regions of the Danube Basin — with a special focus on the Carpathian Mountains. Since its kick-off in January 2017, the project has been working on improving planning frameworks and developing concrete environmentally-friendly and safe road and rail transport solutions, taking into account elements of Green Infrastructure — in particular ecological corridors.
