Final curtain for the Innovation Academy at the HUBLO Festival

On The May 23, 2019

The second edition of the Innovation Academy closed on May 23, 2019 at the Sucrière during the HUBLO Festival.

On May 23, PhD students from the second graduating class of the Innovation Academy presented the results of their labor during the final challenge. The jury was able to assess the business projects developed by the four multidisciplinary groups.
For a period of four months, while continuing their research studies, the PhD students had the opportunity to try their hand at entrepreneurship, and developed their own project based on a value proposition shared by the members of the group.

After hearing the four pitches, the jury voted in favor of the Her Hands Make project focusing on the ethical and fair trade of leather goods made by women in Iran.

The Université de Lyon congratulates all participants for their involvement, and hopes that the Innovation Academy opened up opportunities to advance their careers.
