“In agriculture we often talk about how people don't collaborate very much, and don't work together and how many times I think that we work in silence. What a great example here of how, not just agricultural industry but also the research government has collaborated to form this wonderful centre and to launch this first portfolio of projects now, that are going to make a real difference on what people do on farms”. Spoken on September 18th, 2018 at the launch of our first RD&E Portfolio at Parliament House, Canberra

"Invasive species are the reason most of our threatened species are even threatened. And they continue to be the reason why our native species are on the road to extinction. So, to address the challenges, there's a huge amount of work to do. A critical part of that load falls on our researchers, and National Research Collaboration works. The CISS's predecessors, the multiple pest-focused CRC's have proven that, and I really congratulate them for that successful transition to the model of a stand-alone body. We hope that it becomes a permanent body". Spoken on September 18th, 2018 at the launch of our first RD&E Portfolio at Parliament House, Canberra
