Travel reports

To further their research and to keep abreast of international advances in plant biosecurity, CRC staff and students travel overseas or interstate to conferences, symposia and workshops and to meet with leading specialists in biosecurity fields.

CRC researchers prepare travel reports to share what they learned, the benefits to the CRC and Australia's plant biosecurity. Below are summaries of travel reports from our researchers.

Travel proposal forms can be found in the members' area of our website.
