Have you ever considered that your research may provide knowledge, information, materials, products, or technologies that could be misused for harmful purposes? Do you know when a license is required to publish your results? Would you notice when a vial containing an infectious high-risk pathogen is missing?
These examples demonstrate the importance of good practices to secure and account for pathogens and sensitive technologies from unauthorized access, theft, misuse or intentional release.
This page provides you with links to tools and guidelines to support you in assessing the dual-use potential and other biosecurity related sensitivities of your research, such as export control.
The Biosecurity Office is a knowledge and information centre and answers questions regarding biosecurity. Here you will find relevant links, documents and reports. It is also possible to view the biosecurity movie.
