Last year, 27 August 2014, a successful Biosecurity workshop has been organised by the Indonesian Academy of Science (AIPI) during the 9th ASEAN Science and Technology Week in Bogor. The U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) have given scientific, organisational and financial support. This workshop had participants from multiple ASEAN states, the US and The Netherlands. The aim of the workshop was to bring together stakeholders from science, industry and government, to raise awareness for biosecurity issues in relevant institutions, academies of science, government departments and industries in the ASEAN states; and to present methods and experience for education and awareness raising on biosecurity.
