Employed at the Department of Management and Sustainable Use, Research Group Wildlife Management, he is the focal point for invasive species matters and coordinates invasive species activities throughout the scientific community at the institute. He is accustomed to liaising with organizations and institutions in the field of invasive species research and policy and has extensive experience in providing expertise and support in relation to invasive species management and biodiversity in general. Current invasion biology research topics include, among others, sustainable control of invasive amphibian and feral exotic geese populations, invasive weeds, ruddy duck eradication and monitoring, aquatic invasive species, exotic insects used for biological control, invasive species recording etc. Tim is a (co)author of several reports and international publications and is currently coordinating the European-funded Invexo project on invasive species management and policy in Flanders, notably the bullfrog and invasive geese cases. Before working at INBO Tim worked as a research associate at the Institute for Nature Conservation where he has performed several projects on biodiversity, ecological networks and landscape ecology for different governmental bodies and stakeholders.

Research expertise

Tim Adriaens is a senior scientist at INBO. He is the focal point for invasive species matters and coordinates invasive species activities throughout the scientific community. His expertise covers horizon scanning, risk assessment and risk management, cost-benefit analysis, IAS impacts and monitoring. Tim is accustomed to liaising with organizations and institutions in the field of invasive species research, management and policy and provides expertise and support in relation to invasive species management. Current invasion biology research topics include, among others, risk assessment, best management practices, eradication and control of invasive vertebrate populations, invasive weeds, invasive species recording through citizen science, management prioritisation, etc. He is deeply involved in the implementation of the European IAS Regulation in Belgium, more notably in setting up surveillance, early warning and management of IAS. Tim coordinated the European-funded Invexo (Invasive Species in Flanders and the Netherlands) and RINSE (Reducing the Impact of Invasive Non-Native Species in Europe) projects on invasive species management and policy. He was involved as a vertebrate expert in the EU Horizon Scanning (EU ENV.B.2/ETU/2014/0016), is an active contributor to the COST Action Alien Challenge (TD1209) and the IAS working group at EU level. With the other members of the TrIAS core team Tim co-organized an Alien Challenge workshop on data interoperability for invasive species.
