Explore our current challenges and collaboration opportunities.
We invite the global innovation community to join us in building solutions for agriculture by responding to specific challenges and submitting proposals for collaboration.
Apply to a challenge or submit your proposal in one of our interest areas.
We'll review your submission and respond with our level of interest.
Every project is different. Some may receive a combination of funding and Corteva capabilities, while building valuable relationships.
Check out our time-limited challenges currently accepting submissions from the global innovation community. We'll be posting challenges throughout the year, so check back for new opportunities. You can also review our past challenges to learn more about the types of questions we are tackling with collaboration.
Submission Deadline: November 30, 2021
Funding: up to $50,000
We are looking to collaborate with the broader innovation community on heterologous expression platforms for natural products discovery by exploring the movement of biosynthetic gene clusters of various sizes covering a range of natural product chemospace in fungal (filamentous fungi and yeast) heterologous hosts.
Submission Deadline: January 31, 2022
Awards: Vector design and synthesis, scientific consultation, and genome edited seed*
Join us in an effort to improve broad-spectrum disease resistance in crops through CRISPR-Cas genome editing. We're inviting scientists to submit brief proposals for edits that have the potential to confer broad-spectrum disease resistance to non-bacterial pathogens in three key crops - maize, soybean, and canola.
