The major aims of the Policy working group are:


to promote discussion and awareness


to elaborate policy proposals to present to the European Commission concerning topics of relevance for the aims of MSC actions and in the collective interest of all MCAA members.

The Policy WG activities are often transversal to several working groups and we cooperate with external associations and the European Commission whenever opportunities arise.

Responsible Research and Innovation


Open Science 


Researcher's mental health


Refugees in Higher Education


Career development of MSCA fellows


Environment and Climate Change


MCAA / Euroscientist joint webinars series


We invite all those interested in science policy to join us! We welcome new members willing to develop new projects or contribute to current ones. Please add a description of why you are interested in being in the group to your membership request so it speeds up the process ;)
