Brazil Chapter | Marie Curie Alumni Association

Brazil Chapter

The Brazil Chapter is an official component of the MCAA, and encourages local networking and attracts new members to the Association within all parts of the country.

We aim to enhance the image of the MCAA in Brazil by organising interesting events and innovative activities. We would like to share our experiences as researchers, to highlight the benefits of Marie Curie Actions, and of the MCAA Association, and to communicate our ideas of the world as a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary community.

All MCAA members residing in Brazil, or Brazilian nationals residing elsewhere, are welcome to become members of the Brazil Chapter.

Membership of the Chapter is free! Just click on the 'Join Group' logo at the top of the right-hand column, and we would be happy to welcome you.
