Bayer is an international life science company offering innovative products that serve the health of humans, plants and animals. With core competencies in the areas of health care and agriculture, we take on two of the greatest challenges of the 21st century: The health and the nutrition of the growing population.

Fulfilling the demand for quality, nutritious food for all depends on visionary thinking, courage and creativity. At Bayer, our spirit of innovation and curiosity means we are always looking to develop more advanced solutions to meet these future challenges. On and off the farm, we work closely with our customers, our business and research partners and the wider community to improve the security of our food and fibre supplies and our overall quality of life. This great tradition is also our commitment to the future – entirely in line with our mission: Science For A Better Life.

We have been investing in Australian agriculture for almost 100 years, supplying leading brands backed by expert advice in the areas of seeds and plant biotechnology, crop protection and non-agricultural pest control. For every $10 spent on our products, more than $1 goes towards creating even better products for our customers.

Bronze Partner


We are a university of the land and people of our regions. True to the character of regional Australia we have gumption, we have soul and we collaborate with others.

We develop holistic, far-sighted people who help their communities grow and flourish.

The Wiradjuri phrase yindyamarra winhanganha means the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in.

This phrase represents who we are at CSU – our ethos. It comes from traditional Indigenous Australian knowledge, but it also speaks to the mission of universities – to develop and spread wisdom to make the world a better place.

Harnessing technology, we thrive as a distributed yet connected community, welcoming and engaging with people across Australia and the world.
