Abstract: Science-based strategies to tackle biological invasions depend on recent, accurate, well-documented, standardized and openly accessible information on alien species. Currently, biodiversity data are scattered in numerous data silos that lack interoperability. This is not different for alien species data and this obstructs more efficient methods to retrieve, combine and use these kinds of information for research and policy-making. In this paper, we outline how data on alien species can be made more useful based on the results of a dedicated workshop. Access to accurate, real-time and historical data will repay the long-term investment in data management infrastructure, by providing more accurate, timely and realistic information. Towards this goal, if we improving improve core biodiversity data standards by developing their relevance to alien species it will allow the automation of common activities regarding data processing in support of environmental policy. Furthermore, we call for considerable effort to maintain, update, standardize, archive and aggregate current data sets, to ensure proper valorization of alien species data and resulting information before they become obsolete or lost.
