​The Special International Workshop on Weeds and Invasive Plants was held from 24-28 June 2014 in Benasque, Spain. The purpose of the workshop was to discuss then shape the international research agenda for weeds and invasive plants. To achieve this it brought together 35 weeds researchers from 12 countries and encouraged them to exchange ideas, debate contentious issues, identify challenges and goals going forward, facilitate new collaborations, increase the level of interdisciplinary researchers and support early career researchers to take leading roles. I was one of three social scientists in attendance, one of eight researchers from Australia, and one of fourteen early career researchers.
