The AXA Research Fund invites applications for its chairs programme. Grants enable institutions to attract one or more world-class researchers to undertake teaching alongside research work. The researcher may address the following topics:
•environmental risks, including natural hazards, human-driven environmental changes and risks linked to climate change;
•life risks, including ageing and long-term care, addictions and risky behaviours and biomedical risks;
•socio-economic risks, including geopolitical risks, macro-economic and systematic financial risks, individual and collective behaviours when facing uncertainties, and large corporate risks.
Applications are welcomed from research institutions in the European Union as well as from 40 other countries.
Chair positions may request up to €2.5 million, while funding for the successional chair programme is worth up to €1.8m.
