Time: 18:30-20:30

Workshop agenda included presentation by SIL WG AIS Chairperson Dr. Vadim Panov on present and future WG activities, including current situation with European Research Network on Aquatic Invasive Species (ERNAIS), and discussion. As it has been outlined in the presentation, current short-term priority objective of ERNAIS include facilitation of development of subregional thematic networks/information hubs on aquatic invasive species in Europe. The long-term objective include integration of ERNAIS into the Global Invasive Species Information Network (GISIN) via development of the European Information Network on IAS, based on subregional information hubs. Considering development of GISIN, new perspective role of SIL WG AIS on the world-wide level should be facilitation of development of interlinked subregional and regional thematic networks and information hubs of this global network (specifically contribute with relevant information on freshwater and brackishwater invasive species, including primary data for online GIS and species entries, publications, project descriptions, expert contacts etc).
