Centre has seven years of funding to build on existing facility at Lincoln University
A Centre of Research Excellence that opens in June will aim to make biosecurity research in New Zealand more connected and more focused on Māori knowledge.
The virtual Bioprotection Aotearoa centre will widen the scope of the existing Bio-Protection Research Centre, based at Lincoln University. That Centre of Research Excellence, or CoRE, has been running since 2003. The Bioprotection Aotearoa CoRE, one of 10 CoREs funded for 2021-28, has been given NZ$32.5 million over seven and a half years by the Tertiary Education Commission.
