Abstract: An organizational chart is proposed clearly defining the role of each player in the arena of implementing the European policies on invasive alien species. The European Alien Species Information Network (EASIN) will work in partnership with European and global data providers to facilitate access to key data and information on alien species and to demonstrate the usefulness of the existing databases. Ultimately, EASIN should facilitate further support to data collection and database maintenance and sustainability. Expected key outputs of the partnership include: (1) The implementation of a data discovery portal that facilitates access to alien species data and links to the original sources of information; (2) Developing tools and web services that allow easy exploration, visualization, and best use of alien species data; (3) Facilitation of the work of national institutions to develop national lists or information compiled for reports, and support individual country’s activities, including reporting under the EU legislative framework and CBD.
