First Job



European Operations Field Program

Company description

DuPont is working inclusively with others to find innovative, science-enabled solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges.

Inclusive innovation means global collaboration focused on feeding the world, reducing dependence on fossil fuels, and protecting what matters most.

It means hybrid seeds for harsh climates are field-tested by farmers to find the seeds that thrive. It is how solar installations that harvest more energy can be wired into the grid for a growing urban population. And it makes plant-based replacements for petrochemicals a growing business that enables a shrinking carbon footprint.

DuPont believes that big challenges must be met by bigger science. Inclusive innovation is our approach to applying science to create solutions, on a scale no company, organization or country could accomplish alone.
