Since 2012, the Turenne Group has headed the Béatrice Denys foundation for therapeutic innovation, which recognises the most successful projects within academic medical research in France, under the aegis of the Fondation pour la Recherche Médicale.
Created in 2006, each year the Béatrice Denys foundation for therapeutic innovation supports one or more leading scientific projects arising from academic biomedical research in France by awarding each a subsidy of up to eighty thousand (80,000) euros. It operates under the aegis of the Fondation pour la Recherche Médicale (FRM), which is very closely involved in calls for projects and the running of the Foundation.
Since it was created, the Foundation has already granted awards to 20 projects, seven of which are the object of the creation of a company. The Béatrice Denys foundation for therapeutic innovation supports leading scientific projects with the aim of providing a therapeutic benefit for patients, healthcare professionals and healthcare systems, focusing on creating a company in a short space of time.
Each year, a national call for projects is launched by the Foundation with the financial and operating support of Turenne Healthcare. The call for projects aims to support initiatives arising from medical academic research, created by teams that have already been put together around one or two researchers and working within a French public laboratory and leading to the creation of a company. It is disseminated among research laboratories, organisations and hospitals with the support of FRM and Turenne Healthcare.
Since 2018, the Turenne Group and the Turenne Hôtellerie team have worked alongside this charity to be able to pass on job offers at hotels in the portfolio in the Paris region and encourage hotel managers to give people a chance.
The charity was created in 2007 and aims to improve living conditions for residents of the city suburbs in the Paris region.
In 2012, BSFA launched the “Gilets Bleus” initiative, which aims to mobilise young people in difficulty as part of voluntary community services at hospitals, resulting in internships or jobs with partner companies.
The young people with the Gilets Bleus finish their community service at hospitals, with six months training, a “community service certificate” and monitoring by a mentor, which allows them to access internship and job offers and re-enter the world of work.
