About the Symposium
The Plant Sciences Symposium is primarily a student organized symposia series sponsored by Corteva Agriscience™, an agriculture division of DowDupont™, that is held at universities and research institutes worldwide. The objective of the Symposium is to promote the interaction between scientists and experts of both public and private sectors. In October 2019, the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) will host the Plant Science Symposium in Los Baños, Philippines.
The theme of the symposium is “Agri-food value chain: Challenges and Opportunities“.
Focusing on five levels of the value chain: 1) Agri-input manufacturer, 2) Farmers, 3) Food manufacturer and traders, 4) Food retailers, and 5) Consumers.
About the Host
IRRI is the world’s premier research organization dedicated to reducing poverty and hunger through rice science, improving the health and welfare of rice farmers and consumers, and protecting rice-growing environments for future generations. It is an independent, nonprofit, research and educational institute, founded in 1960 by the Ford and Rockefeller foundations with support from the Philippine government. The Institute is also a part of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), a global partnership that unites organizations engaged in research for a food-secured future.
