To deliver this extensive range of projects, the NBU team works with eighty highly skilled and qualified scientific colleagues across Fera, representing nine different programmes. As one might expect, many of these personnel are specialists in pest and disease identification. Others, however, work in Knowledge Management (e.g. to support BeeBase), environmental risk, crop and food security, contaminants and authenticity, wildlife and emerging diseases and detection and analysis of chemical residues.

The NBU engages with many institutes and universities, both in the UK and overseas (EU and non-EU).
