The one day and a half Pop Day on Environmental Risks gathered for its second edition 18 AXA Research Fellows working in the Environmental field at AXA Headquarters in Paris.
This event is organized in order to allow young researchers to work on their communication skills and thus to be able to present their work in a more efficient and popularized way.
After a day of breathing, elocution, writing, and layout or illustration techniques exercises to help them explaining simply and clearly their work and preventing them from loosing their consistency, five of them chose to present the subject of their research before an audience built of board of directors from the AXA Group. Each researcher has illustrated its presentation with pictures, examples, charts and concrete anecdotes. Both the public and the jury enjoyed presentations on the following subjects.
