39 new research programs

On June 28th, the AXA Research Fund announced its support for 39 new researchers this year.

Environmental issues will benefit from significant support, with 15 projects supported in this field, on topics such as resilient cities, the protection of urban infrastructures or seismic risk assessment.

In the health field, 9 projects have been selected on innovative issues such as finding new allergy treatments or better understanding the human genome.

Technological issues such as big data, robotics or artificial intelligence, are being addressed through 5 projects led by researchers working in the best laboratories.

Furthermore, 10 new projects, aimed at improving our knowledge in the social and economic fields, have been selected, to better understand the impact of FinTechs on our economies.
