Key end users/stakeholders

Implementation:    Research on biosecurity/tourism is still in its early stages so too early for implementation of B3 research.  The various strands of this project will be workshopped with end-users (MPI (including teams working across risk assessment, surveillance, intelligence, communications and border analytics), DOC, industry) in 2020 to develop priorities going forward.
