Surveillance and analysis reduce the risk of new entry of pests, diseases and weeds and better target the risks that matter most.
Building Scientific Capability
Building Scientific Capability themed research endeavours to ensure that science remains effective and cutting edge in an increasingly complex biosecurity environment by building capacity and developing professional networks and collaborations.
Data and Information
Data and Information research involves optimal use of data and information to facilitate better biosecurity risk management.
Data Mining research aims to develop, test, and implement systems and protocols that provide effective and efficient inspection of large volumes of biosecurity data.
Spatial Analysis research contributes to surveillance by using spatial models that anticipate the source of biosecurity risks, identify high risk pathways, predict the spread of current incursions and the locations of future biosecurity incursions.
Intelligence research develops and tests tools to assist biosecurity managers to foresee new threats.
Benefit Cost research is about determining the optimal–cost efficient approach for maximising the detection of different biosecurity incursions and managing current and future threats.
