Impact, learnings, and new thinking for biosecurity in a COVID-19 world

15 October 2020

You’re welcome to join the third annual Tauranga Moana Biosecurity Capital (TMBC) symposium, which this year will focus on highlighting the impacts of COVID-19 on the Bay of Plenty region from a wide range of perspectives, demonstrating the close parallels with biosecurity.

We'll be hearing from inspirational speakers about why biosecurity matters now more than ever including new technology and innovation, how we're building capability across the region and where we should focus our efforts going forward.

Two of the people joining us will be Penny Nelson, Deputy Director General of Biosecurity New Zealand and Professor Juliet Gerrard, the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor.

The event programme includes tea, coffee and snacks on arrival and a networking lunch. There is no cost to attend. Spaces are limited so please secure your place by registering early (and before Friday 23 October 2020).
