About Julien

PhD in Neuroscience (UPMC, 2004), I have developed and managed several basic research projects in the field of neuroscience using various and innovative experimental approaches (electrophysiology, cellular-molecular biology, new animal models, laser vibrometry). I made his career as a researcher in great world-class laboratories (Ecole Normale Supérieure, Institut Pasteur, Riken BSI) and he has collaborated with international teams in academia and R&D. Moreover, I've been in charge of teaching in several universities for ten years.
In 2008, I also co-founded the NGO "Collectif PAPERA" to provide supports, information and advice to PhD students, Ph.D.s and other casual workers in Higher Education and academic research in France.
My experience in research, teaching, and NGO provides him a deep knowledge of the academic and R&D fields with a solid expertise in digital tools and social media. Therefore in 2013, I founded the start-up Tree of Science, which is dedicated to make the scientific research (science, humanities, and R&D) and citizen science enter into the digital (r)evolution and Open Science by providing digital solutions and strategy for researchers and their research organizations. Tree of Science promotes Science 2.0, digital tools and networks for researchers, Open science, science crowdfunding, and Open innovation to trigger a systematic change in the modus operandi of doing research and managing science.
