The workshop was organisation by the Food Standards Agency and was intended to create a critical dialogue between multiple stakeholders on research gaps and collaboration opportunities with regards to biosurveillance. The event had short presentations from various organisations talking about programmes and initiatives such as PATH-SAFE, GAP-DC, AMR National Action Plan and the Biological Security Strategy, as well as hearing from funders and societies in the biosurveillance arena. Following these presentations, there was two breakout sessions; • Barriers to cross-sector and government working in biosurveillance. This session focused on conducting a root cause analysis of 4-6 identified systemic barriers and engage in an ideation process to overcome the root causes leading to systemic barriers. • Identifying gaps and opportunities across the biosurveillance sector. This session focused on mapping research and initiatives across the biosurveillance value chain and identify gaps in technical capabilities and methods to support surveillance. This was followed by identification of opportunities to address the gaps.
