Biosecurity Commons launches new website

Jan 31, 2022

Brisbane, Queensland – Biosecurity Commons, a ground-breaking project that will deliver an innovative cloud-based modelling and analytics platform for the Australian biosecurity sector, is thrilled to announce the launch of its new branding and website www.biosecuritycommons.org.au. The website aims to drive brand recognition and raise awareness for the project.

“This is a significant milestone for our project. It is where prospective users, collaborators and partners can learn about the tools we’re developing and how they will transform research and decision-making in the future,” said Mr Paul Tudman, Project Manager for Biosecurity Commons, based at Griffith University, Queensland.

“The first thing visitors will notice is our striking new logo and unique branding elements featured throughout the site. We wanted the website to be visually appealing, simple to navigate, and informative to create a positive user experience and encourage visitors to follow our project journey.”

Visitors will discover what the platform will offer, who it is for, and when the platform will be released publicly. The website also features information about the partners, governance groups and the team driving the project.

In the future, the website will be the gateway to their new biosecurity modelling and analytics platform that will offer users a suite of standard decision-support tools and resources to solve biosecurity problems.

“As early as May, visitors will be able to access a pre-release version of the platform,” said Paul. 

“To support the project, we’ve also created Twitter and LinkedIn accounts that will allow us to connect to a broader audience and raise awareness for the project. We invite the biosecurity community to explore our new website, sign-up to our newsletter and follow us on social media to learn more.”

 

About Biosecurity Commons

Biosecurity Commons will deliver a cloud-based decision-support platform for modelling and analysing biosecurity risk and response, scheduled for release April 2023. The project is a $1.8m joint initiative between the Australian and Queensland Government, the NCRIS funded ARDC and four other organisations, including the Centre of Excellence for Biosecurity Risk Analysis at The University of Melbourne, Griffith University, EcoCommons, and the Atlas of Living Australia, hosted by the CSIRO. The project is a ‘proof of concept’ that aims to showcase the cost and time-saving benefits of leveraging the modelling and analytics infrastructure and approaches of the EcoCommons project.
