In their first PhD year, the NexGenAgriChem cohort learnt about agriculture business, in-house inventive processes and examples of how Chemical tools and technologies are currently applied in Syngenta’s agricultural research environment.



Bayer CropScience hosted a 2-day visit  to their site in in Frankfurt in March 2016. The cohort was invited to join a series of lectures on the discovery and development of agrochemicals at Bayer. During the visit, Early Stage Researchers were given a tour around the research site and met with young members of staff within the company to provide an opportunity to talk about careers in industry.



The research site in Stein is a scientific centre of excellence for Syngenta’s Crop Protection research activities. During a visit in 2017, the cohort will be given a tour around the greenhouses and laboratories and will take part in a workshop on the Fungi, Insecticide and Seed Care business.
