The two-day Plant Biosecurity Research Symposium will showcase current plant biosecurity research supported by the PBRI member organisations and delivered by a large range of research teams in Australia. This includes research on pests, diseases and weeds affecting plant productions systems and surrounding environments.

The program will include keynote speakers, presentations from research teams, and panel discussions on future priorities for RD&E. Importantly it will provide a forum for plant biosecurity networking and collaboration ‘across industries’.

Under a recently signed MOU between PBRI and B3 (Better Border Biosecurity, NZ), this event will include presentations from New Zealand colleagues working on common biosecurity threats with the intention of future collaboration with Australian researchers.

A dedicated session on future biosecurity leaders will include presentations from up-and-coming leaders studying or working in the field of biosecurity.

We invite interested growers, industry representatives, researchers, students and biosecurity staff to save the date for this two-day event.
