Invasive alien species (IAS) - i.e. species that are not native to Europe and have a severe negative impact on native flora and fauna - are one of the main pressures on biodiversity in the EU and at global level.

The workshop will focus on the expansion of EASIN, especially by including offline databases that exist in institutes or national repositories which are not accessible to the scientific community. The workshop will address data standardisation issues and protocols for sharing information.
