The expertise centre strives to develop evidence based, scientifically sound knowledge for the following aims:

▪              Prevention of introduction- and early detection of exotic species

▪              Prediction effects of exotic species on indigenous species- and systems and risk analysis

▪              Advise policy makers and land owners concerning effective mitigation measures.
