As illustrating research on risks is particularly challenging, the AXA Research Fund asked its supported researchers to showcase their work in a creative way. The AXA Research Fund has awarded the grantees providing the most original photo, portraying them in a way that clearly evokes their research topic.
The first prize of €1,500 has been awarded by a selected and impartial Jury to Ted McCormack, for his photo illustrating his work on risk assessment for groundwater flooding.
The AXA employees have awarded the second prize of €1,000 to Doctor Ruth Fernández-García, for her photo illustrating her work on the extinction of dolphins.
These photos also feature in the "Science is beautiful" virtual exhibition we invite you to discover, along with a dozen other pictures of supported researchers worldwide, who succeeded in popularizing their research in an inspiring and original way.
