Carry out innovative strategic research: this is the aim of the Wallonia Public Service Win²Wal program.
This program is aimed at universities, associated with industrial partners.
The University of Namur has obtained funding (2.26 Mo €) for 5 projects out of the 22 selected!
With this funding, Wallonia intends to support research projects,
- Who already have an advanced level of technological development,
- Which respond to a strategic theme for the Walloon economy and,
- For which a strong industrial need has been identified with the possibility, in the long term, of developing a new product / process / service by the partner Walloon company.
This program enabled the University of Namur to establish collaborations with innovative and enthusiastic SMEs.
4 projects are coordinated by UNamur including "BACTOFIGHT" (Professor Pierre Van Cutsem - with Fytofend) which will work on the feasibility of developing a biocontrol product against bacterial plant diseases.
