DuPont Plant Sciences Symposia Series


At DuPont Pioneer, we believe the next generation will play a pivotal role in meeting food and energy needs. Working with students to facilitate a science-based forum such as the DuPont Plant Science Symposia series enhances discussion amongst the academic community and private industry; builds key organizational and management skills in future plant scientists; and exposes students to career opportunities in agriculture.

What is the DuPont Plant Sciences Symposia series?


























Series’ impact

  • More than 90 events in 40 universities on 6 continents have been held, reaching more than 15,000 participants, since 2008.
  • Students gain important organizational, teamwork and resource-management skills while sharing their experiences and deepening their understanding of the plant sciences.

How does it work?

  • Graduate students direct the content and organize the symposia on a fixed budget with support from the university faculty and departments.
  • DuPont Pioneer provides funding.
