On June 28th, 2018, the AXA Research Fund celebrated its 10th anniversary with a special event that gathered AXA employees, member of government such as Jean-Michel Blanquer French Minister of Education, and media. This evening celebrated our past accomplishments, and future endeavors: the AXA Research Fund has already funded 563 projects in 35 countries, supporting researchers from 58 nationalities for a total of EUR 180 million. On June 28th, AXA’s CEO Thomas Buberl announced a renewed commitment of EUR 50 million for 5 years, continuing AXA’s support to Science.
39 new funded projects were announced as well as two new call for projects in the topics of a energy transition and women’s health.
The AXA Research Fund promotes the dissemination of scientific research. In this aim, a broad communications campaign will be launched on July 9th on the French market to raise awareness about the areas of research supported by AXA.
