After of my PhD, I wanted to go further in academic research and go abroad to improve my foreign language skills and acquire professional experience there. In that framework, the Marie Curie grant gave me the opportunity to develop my own research project with a large degree of autonomy.

Xavier undertakes research on the nervous system. He wanted to travel, discover new cultures and new ways to carry out research. He also needed independence in his work and to be released from the burden of looking for funding while dealing with tight deadlines. Marie Curie Actions were ideal for him.
