The Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) is promoting an active community of researchers brought together by past or present mobility experience under the European Commission's Marie Curie programme. To promote these activities in Ireland, the MCAA Ireland chapter was founded in 2017 to enhance interactions between members and raise the profile of this exceptional group of researchers. Since it was founded the Ireland Chapter has attracted ca 100 members ranging from high profile researchers to newly funded fellows. These members are from across the island of Ireland both north and south of the border which is fitting as science knows no borders... The Ireland Chapter will have its official launch in UCD on October 2nd where there will be an excellent line-up of speakers. Further to this, the Ireland Chapter plans to organise and run specific events in: Bridging science and business, gender equality and science communication.
Date: Monday 2nd October 2017. 09h30 to 14h00
Venue: University College Dublin, Stillorgan Road, Dublin
