The AXA Research Fund invites you to the Sciences, Research and Society Forum, organized by the newspapers LeMonde and LaRecherche, which will take place at the College de France on June 28. During the afternoon plenary session, Godefroy Beauvallet, head of the AXA Research Fund, will comment the results of the exclusive opinion poll by Ipsos about the relationships between science and democracy, science and the daily life of French people and how they perceive research in their country.
For its third edition, this AXA Research Fund Pop Day on Life Risks gathered 16 of its AXA Research Fellows at its headquarters in Paris for a 2-days coaching session to help them popularise their work for a wider audience!
This workshop is co-sponsored by the AXA Research Fund, Bristol's Cabot Institute and the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol.
The specific motivation is the launch of Kathy Cashman’s AXA-sponsored Research Chair at Bristol.
Pierre-André Chiappori, Professor of Economics at Columbia University, just published a study about the funding of research. He was interviewed on BFM radio to briefly present its results and quoted Henri de Castries and the AXA Research Fund as a model of corporate funding of research.
