Through Research, Progress

The AXA Research Fund is the scientific philanthropy initiative of global insurance leader AXA dedicated to boosting scientific discoveries that contribute to societal progress. It also encourages researchers to engage with the general audience and feed the public debate.

We were born in 2007 out of the strong belief that science plays a critical role in empowering people to face today’s challenges and forge themselves a better life.

So far, we have supported 563 research projects with a commitment of 179 millions €, carried out by leading researchers of 58 nationalities and hosted in 35 countries.
