Explaining Science in just 3 minutes: 3 AXA Meets Science pitches
Focus on our projects around preserving coral reefs to protect coastline, turning waste into energy source and making cervical cancer detection widely available.
It was the challenge of the 15 AXA grantees who came from all over the world to attend an AXA Research Fund media training session at AXA’s global headquarter.
Objectives: to share the research with a wider audience and inform decision making by honing their communication skills.
Thanks to a three-day media training programme, 15 of our Post-Doctoral Fellows were asked to prepare an "elevator pitch" for their project, linking it to one of the UN Social Development Goals. They then attended the AXA Meets Science Conference to share their research with a broader public and AXA audience, all in 3 minutes.
At the AXA Research Fund, funding Science is not our only mission: we also make a point of helping our researchers get their Science out of the lab.
So we encourage them and give them the means to share their research with a broad, non-academic audience for the benefit of all.
