Partnerships @ KWS

At KWS, we believe that partnerships are key to facilitate the development and adoption of innovative approaches to improve plant breeding, agriculture methods, and sustainable farming practices. That is why we work closely with academia, scientific organizations, startups, and industry all over the world to enable and access the latest technologies, know-how, digital solutions, and tools that add value to KWS’s established business in seeds and services.

Under the objective of mutual growth, we create partnerships through joint research projects, license deals, market linkages, and/or financial engagement. To date, we have concluded a myriad of research collaborations and realized direct investments in early and later-stage startups, joint ventures, spinouts, and indirect fund investments that strategically fit our portfolio.

As a global plant breeding company and seed producer with activities in nearly 70 countries and more than 160 years of experience, we will provide you with a unique, collaborative, and open scientific environment for the further development and commercialization of your ideas or technologies. When needed, we will put at your disposition our field trials facilities, laboratories, and experienced personnel for testing and relevant assessments.

We are interested in the following areas

If you have an idea, technology or project related to our areas of interest, do not hesitate to contact us. Submit your proposal and one of our Innovation and Licensing Professionals will contact you.
