“In agriculture we often talk about how we don't collaborate very well, how we're an industry of many diverse moving parts. But in actual fact for me, this Centre has always been an absolutely gold plated example of how collaboration works. Collaboration between the research institutions, between industry and between government.” Fiona Simson, President, National Farmers Federation. Parliamentary Friends of Primary Producers CISS Invasives Innovation Showcase, Parliament House, Canberra. 22 February 2021

We need the innovation and tech tools to support community biosecurity surveillance and action near our ports, around our cities and towns and where pests and weeds are spreading throughout Australia.” Andrew Cox, CEO, Invasive Species Council 12 February 2021
