Last season our Global Research Facility hosted two summer internships through the Callaghan Research Grant program. This was an excellent opportunity for students to gain experience in field research and development, develop new skills and work with dedicated scientists. The Corteva internship program caters for students who are keen to gain hands-on practical experience at a first class research facility.
