Established by the EC in 2012, the Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) is today a thriving organization, with 11,000+ members and growing. These are all current or past beneficiaries of a Marie Curie research grant, working and living across five continents.
MCAA members are among the best researchers in the world. They are mobile, industry experienced and well trained in different fields including life sciences, physical sciences, engineering, humanities, economics and many other areas.
To keep this community thriving, and making the most of the opportunities presented by our global network, the MCAA has geographic chapters and issue specific working groups. It also holds its Annual Conference/General Assembly each year. At these events, members meet in person, talk to peers and industry, exchange knowledge, and make the most of this incredible network.
The 2019 event will take place in the University of Vienna, Austria. Dating from 1365, the University is one of the oldest in the German-speaking world. With its long and rich history, the University of Vienna is associated with 15 Nobel prize winners and offers a structure and visibility tailored to the vibrant network of the MCAA.
