Jealott’s Hill supports scientists of the future


Jealott's Hill hosted students from the London International Youth Science Forum (LIYSF) at their Jealott’s Hill International Research Centre. Fourteen students from nine different countries, from as far afield as China, UAE and Jamaica spent the day learning about the application of science, technology, engineering and maths for new agricultural innovations. 

The LIYSF is an annual world renowned science conference that hosts budding future scientists from more than seventy countries. Students have a packed two week programme that includes lectures from experts, and visits to world-leading scientific laboratories, research sites and universities.

Gary Needham, Syngenta Biologist, accompanied the students throughout their visit and gave them an insight the range of scientific activities on the site. Whilst on their tour, students engaged with a variety of scientists who demonstrated the plant science and food production technology innovations that Syngenta supports.

“The LIYSF visitors come from very diverse academic and social backgrounds but their shared passion for science made it a pleasure to host them. It was great to showcase our science, technology and careers and I hope that they are inspired to continue their interest in science.” Gary Needham, Syngenta Biologist
