Our Mission

We focus on fundamental research into natural, sustainable ways of protecting New Zealand from plant pests, diseases and weeds.

Our world-class research and development aims to:

  • enhance national biosecurity
  • create sustainable production systems
  • protect New Zealand’s unique, natural ecosystems
  • develop new bioprotection tools and technologies.


We are a national Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) funded since 2003 by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC). We are a virtual organisation with members in five partner institutes.
