  • NEW GRANTS!


    APPLY FOR THE 2 L'OCCITANE SIGHT AWARDS!

    2 grants of
    €50,000 each this year, dedicated to fight avoidable blindness
    in developing countries, for research and innovation. 


    The World Health Organization shows that 80% of blindness could be avoided thanks to adapted treatments.

    To fight avoidable blindness, the ophthalmologic research is thus one of the priorities to find the best ways to treat most of the pathologies. This is why the L’OCCITANE Foundation was willing to go further into its involvement by presenting a 50,000€ award once every 2 years to an ophthalmologist for their research work and their projects to fight avoidable blindness in the developing countries.

     New! This year, the L’OCCITANE Foundation is also launching a new way to be supported: a 50,000€ award to support innovation, a new prize for innovators and their inspiring projects in eye care. Through new tools and technologies, the Foundation is willing to support new approaches and new solutions to give better access to quality eyecare in developing countries.
