The Part’âge project, winner of the Innovation Academy’s final challenge

On The July 6, 2020

The Innovation Academy is open to doctoral students at the Lyon and Saint-Étienne sites. The hands-on training program is designed around innovation management and understanding business strategies. Four teams worked to develop a business project, from the idea to the business plan. These projects were awarded based on both a presentation before the Innovation Academy jury and a public vote.

The 2020 Innovation Academy jury, which is made up of innovation professionals, met on June 30. The jury was able to provide valuable advice, not only on the proposed projects, but also on the skills developed as part of this exercise. The jury selected the Part'âge project based on the team’s business plan and pitch.

This project aims to develop a computer platform specifically designed as a learning interface. The project team members are:

  • Mira Hanna, PhD student at the LIBM, Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1
  • Baptiste Ferrero, PhD student at the ENS de Lyon physics laboratory
  • Gabriel Ledzema Lopez, PhD student at the IFPEN
  • Solohaja Rabenjamina, PhD student at the CITI, INSA Lyon


The general public was also invited to select their favorite pitch. With more than 800 votes cast, the public voted Part'âge as the most convincing project.
