Innovation in Plant Biosecurity 2017 will be hosted by Fera at the National Agri-Food Innovation Campus, Sand Hutton, York, YO41 1LZ, UK

Aimed at researchers, innovators, technologists and policy makers, Plant Biosecurity 2017 provides attendees with a forum for knowledge sharing and networking on the topic of biosecurity. The conference is the culmination of a three year project and is organised against the backdrop of the Plant Biosecurity Strategy for Great Britain, as released in 2014, and revisions to the EU Plant Health Regime.

The four main themes of the conference reflect ways in which biosecurity innovations can be imagined and realised. These are:

  • Emerging risks
  • Movement and borders
  • Behaviours
  • Technology

We are delighted to be able to announce that the following experts will be speaking at Innovation in Plant Biosecurity 2017:

  • Professor Sir John Beddington - Senior Adviser, Oxford Martin School
  • Professor Michael Jeger - Senior Research Investigator, Imperial College London
  • Professor Helen Roy - Principal Scientist, NERC Centre for Ecology & Hydrology
