About the forum
To make the most of research investment, RD&E needs to be strategic, collaborative and well planned. This two-day forum brought together plant industries, regulators, policy makers and research leaders to link national science and research priorities to the needs of plant industries and governments.
Organisations were invited to share their perspectives on problems and solutions in plant biosecurity so that research priorities could be aligned with the areas of greatest need.
There were keynote speakers from government, industry peak bodies and research sectors, and workshops to contribute expertise and ideas.
In addition to contributing ideas to the future of plant biosecurity research, the forum provided an opportunity to enhance networks and foster partnerships with others who want to advance plant biosecurity science.
