All grant recipients of the AXA Research Fund, the participants will be challenged to communicate their science quickly, concisely, visually and metaphorically.

For the fifth edition of AXA's annual science popularization event, these researchers from France, Italy, Greece, Romania, Sweden, India, Cameroon, etc. are coached on good, effective science communication. Participants will then present their research to their peers, before facing the ultimate challenge: delivering a refined, streamlined version to the publicincluding a group of AXA executives.

You can join them online throughout the event via the hashtag #AXApopdays and follow the live tweet about their final presentations on June 20th at 11:30 am CEST.

This session will cover an array of research topics, from the risks of climate change to earthquake monitoring, species conservation, antibiotic development and mood disorders.

This initiative is part of the actions proposed during the Corporate Responsibility Week of the AXA Group.
