Possible project: "research on research" on biosecurity in Australia

At the SSNA seminar we met Andrew Robinson, a statistician who teaches biosecurity at U Melbourne. That lead to a very interesting discussion on using statistics to enhance SSNA, which I will document elsewhere.

Andrew is putting together a project where, roughly, to “classify” biosecurity research, and assessing the distance between what the stakeholders think is important and what researchers are actually doing. The funder is the Australian ministry of agriculture. He is thinking about a networked approach, and there might be some space for a collaboration. No action required, he is doing all the pitching and the writing. Updates in maybe two weeks.
