A new article with the contribution of SAFOSO authors has been published. In the study, the datasets utilised in the SPARE project ('Spatial risk assessment framework for assessing exotic disease incursion and spread through Europe') project are described and discussed in terms of key criteria: accessibility, availability, completeness, consistency and quality. A striking issue from this assessment is the need for enhanced data sharing specifically with regards to data on illegal seizures, arthropod vector/wildlife abundance, intra-country livestock movement and national animal disease surveillance. The paper is available in Microbial Risk Analysis journal: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2352352218300616
