Providing input into smarter science for New Zealand biosecurity

05 September 2019

New Zealand faces increasing pressure on our biosecurity systems and needs science to deliver smarter approaches for managing risk. New Zealand’s Biological Heritage National Science Challenge is a major initiative that is seeking to deliver science solutions for biodiversity and biosecurity.

The Challenge is based around seven strategic outcomes for which a co-design process is currently being undertaken with stakeholders to guide research priorities, through a series of workshops.

KVH is well represented in this process providing stakeholder input into three of these Strategic Outcomes; emerging risks, border tools and technologies, and post-border tools and technologies.
