SmartBiosecurity: Australasian Plant Biosecurity Collaborative Research Institute


We are delighted to present an investment proposal SmartBiosecurityAustralasian Plant Biosecurity Collaborative Science Institute. This proposal for Australasian biosecurity research, development and extension builds upon the existing momentum and structures of the Plant Biosecurity CRC (which ceases in 2018), utilising the strengths of shared resourcing and overcoming the weaknesses of a short-term CRC.
