workshop, network and exchange knowledge on agricultural and environmental biosecurity
facilitate engagement and cross-fertilisation of ideas between researchers and their end-users (industry, regulators and other end-users), and
build cross-disciplinary networks across all biosecurity related disciplines.
The program will focus on agricultural and environmental biosecurity and includes conference streams examining:
DRIVERS â€” What makes biosecurity so important?
THREATS and IMPACTS â€” Understanding risks is the first step in analysing and planning to address biosecurity issues.
KNOWLEDGE â€” Accessing the right information at the right time can be a challenge, with so many agencies and organisations involved across the biosecurity continuum. What information is available, how are you sharing it and what systems underpin it?
SYSTEMS â€” Policy, regulation and operational procedures underpin all biosecurity planning and responses. Is a best practice approach possible?
