Plant Sciences Symposia

Corteva Symposia Series

Working with students at universities around the world to stimulate discussions about agriculture.

Reaching the next generation of scientists since 2008

The next generation of scientists will play a pivotal role in overcoming agricultural challenges. Through the Symposia Series, Corteva Agriscience works directly with the best and brightest students at universities around the world to stimulate discussions about the future of agriculture. Our objective is to arm future scientists with key organizational and management skills and expose them to a diversity of career opportunities in agriculture.

About Our Program

What it is

The Corteva Symposia Series is a global network of student-organized and driven scientific symposia, hosted by leading academic and research institutions.

What it does

The series provides opportunities for the next generation of scientists to plan, host and attend events, tailored to their areas of interest, which include experts from the public and private sectors.

What it covers

Each symposium may include presentations by leading agricultural and plant science researchers, student presentations, workshops, poster sessions, roundtable discussions, and networking opportunities.

How to participate

Sessions are typically free, accessible to the general public and often offered via webinar. Registration information is available at the webpage for each symposium.

How it is funded

Symposia are primarily funded by Corteva; however, student organizers are encouraged to solicit additional sponsorships from their departments, universities, and other organizations.
