On October 3, Gary Crates together with David de Rothschild, gave to Professor Luc Mallet the certificate of ownership corresponding to the first trees planted in the name of the Foundation, then they signed the donation agreement formalizing the partnership. APC Group in Switzerland has committed to donate 5% in the form of Aquilaria trees for each purchase of trees made by an investor who has expressed their wish to participate in this foundation program. Mr. David de Rothschild is President of the Swiss Foundation.

Founded in 2015 in Geneva, the FondaMental Switzerland Foundation is the first Swiss structure dedicated solely to supporting scientific cooperation and international research on psychiatric diseases.

The goal is to improve the lives of patients and their families by developing personalized medicine in psychiatry. Their vision is based on the dialogue between academics, researchers, physicians and patients. Patient participation is at the heart of their approach.

The FondaMental foundation finances collaborative projects of Swiss teams with other teams around the world. By capitalizing on the Franco-Swiss axis, the challenge is to share best practices: enrichment is mutual and the results are multiplied (https://fondamental-suisse.org/).

This project is the culmination of the work carried out by our Business Development Managers Europe Raphael Oeschger and Patrick Castagna for APC Group and Loris Rizzo Ambassador of the Swiss FondaMental Foundation.
