During her Ph.D. at UNIL, biologist Olga Dubey discovered molecules with fungicidal properties. Thanks to the support of UNIL and PACTT, she could benefit from the InnoTREK grant (CHF 100’000.-) and was then able to found her own spin-off, AgroSustain. The goal of AgroSustain is to develop organic treatments against broad range of fungal pathogens affecting plants, for which there is currently no effective organic treatment. Since she benefited from the InnoTREK grant, Olga Dubey successfully won several additional prices.
PACTT wishes full success to Olga and her new spin-off!
The InnoTREK grant, managed by PACTT with the financial support of FIT (Fondation pour l’Innovation Technologique) as part of the InnoPACTT fund, supports selected researchers of UNIL and CHUV who have the ambition to venture into the business world with their innovative projects. These successful projects are chosen in a competitive process from applications received during the two calls per year. Since the launch in 2013, 14 laureates of UNIL and CHUV have benefited from the InnoTREK grant.
