The Incubator of innovative research is an original programme set up at the initiative of the members of the organisation, on own funding, in order to meet the issues of freedom and flexibility of applied scientific research. It enjoys support, without time limit and without administrative restrictions, which allows it to better match with the objectives of independence and general interest, as each researcher involved in the programme can define it.

This way, the researcher who engages in the incubator is free to set his own framework. This is financed through services provided by the researcher for various partners, who then open a right to withdraw on the amounts invoiced until they are gone.

Today, thanks to this technique, it is possible to finance the following works, divided into 3 main focus:

Health and social protection

Fight against cholera

Incubator of ideas in the fight against malaria in Mali and South Africa

  • Research directors: Pr Jean Gaudart, Dr Jordi Landier, Dr Karim Bendiane
  • The aim is to analyze the spatial and temporal dynamics of malaria, in particular the impact of asymptomatic carriage of the parasite as a reservoir. The importance of environmental factors as well as the behaviours of people and social organizations are fundamental elements modulating the dynamics of malaria. This transdisciplinary research is carried out in collaboration with research teams from Mali (MRTC, University of Technical Sciences and Technologies of Bamako), Senegalese (UCAD and IRD Dakar) and South Africa (University of Pretoria, ISMC).
