For over 10 years, the AXA Research Fund has been contributing to projects around the globe that are tackling the most important issues facing our world.
Back in 2007, we established the AXA Research Fund in recognition of the key role that science plays in finding solutions for humanity’s and our planet’s biggest challenges.
Since then, we’ve committed €250m in funding to scientific research, allowing some of the world’s brightest minds to turn their attention to research projects and initiatives that can make a significant difference.
Our support goes beyond funding; the AXA Research Fund gives scientists the means to share their work with the public and the media, which contributes to awareness of the most pressing issues we face and the possible ways of mitigating them.
The AXA Research Fund supports projects in four important areas that work towards a brighter future; health, environment, new technology and socio-economic.
