Mihi mai, karanga mai!
The New Zealand Biosecurity Institute (NZBI) is pleased to announce that it will hold its annual national education and training seminar (NETS) online 28, 29 and 30 July 2021.
Conference Registration is not yet open - but will be via this page in due course.
The NZBI Executive believes that the ongoing uncertainty around Covid-19 requires us to minimise the risks that would be associated with an in-person NETS conference this year. However, we are acutely aware of the importance our members place on coming together to share knowledge and discuss how we can collectively minimise the risk of biosecurity threats to New Zealand.
SAVE THE DATE NOW for July 28, 29 and 30. We will let you know more details in the near future, but we expect the conference to run morning and afternoon sessions during all three days – so please block out your calendars accordingly. The NZBI AGM will be on Thursday, July 29th.
Because of the constraints of an online conference, we are approaching speakers individually this year instead of issuing a general call for abstracts. We also will have our ever-popular GEMS sessions featuring five-minute presentations from students working on cutting edge biosecurity projects.
NETS 2021 will be free for NZBI members or $70 incl GST for non-members. If you are not already a member, and are interested to join use the link below. An option to join will also be available via registration.
On behalf of all the NZBI executive members, I look forward to seeing you online!
