The fourth Annual Surveillance Workshop (ASW) for members of the Plant Surveillance Network Australasia-Pacific (PSNAP) will be held virtually on 9 and 10 December 2020.
The ASW is a forum for people involved in plant health surveillance to come together to make/build relationships and share their experiences. Participants come from all areas of surveillance including government organisations, plant industries, private-sector consultants, universities and other organisations. Usually held face to face, the ASW2020 will be delivered virtually to ensure members can attend the workshop. The ASW will allow participants to learn about the plant health surveillance system, share knowledge and find out what others working in plant health surveillance roles are doing and experiencing in their jobs.
Date: 9-10 December 2020
Theme: In line with the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH), the workshop theme is ‘International, Regional, National and Local Surveillance – where do you fit?’ The workshop will improve the ability of attendees to deliver plant pest surveillance activities to support plant biosecurity.
*Times reflected are Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT).
