Research Funding

This internal MCAA Working Group focuses on the involvement of MCAA in funding proposals for the benefit of MCAA.

It will also assist Chapters and WGs with developing training activities, and in disseminating information related to proposal writing and funding opportunities.

The number of members of this Working Group is restricted to members with demonstrable experience and expertise in this domain, and who can devote considerable time and effort to supporting the activities of the working group.

Please note that the MCAA Research Funding Working Group DOES NOT provide research funding to MCAA members or to other individuals or organisations, so please DO NOT contact the group asking for research funds.

2nd Conference of the Researcher Mental Health Observatory (ReMO 2023)


THEME: "Evidence-Based Interventions for Fostering Healthy Academic Workplaces" The ReMO COST Action focuses on wellbeing and mental health within academia, a theme of strategic importance for the European Research Area and beyond. We would like to invite our fellow researchers and practitioners to critically think about reporting on Evidence-Based Interventions for Fostering Healthy Academic Workplaces. How can stakeholders in the research environment develop interventions tackling this challenge in a rapidly changing world? We therefore hope for an inspiring conference with presentations, workshops and keynotes that will not only showcase the newest findings about the cognitive, motivational, and emotional aspects of Researcher Mental Health and Well-being, but will also be a place to discuss the global challenges that shape the present and will define the future of our research workplaces. The conference will be a hybrid conference within the context of the ReMO COST Action with free online participation and in-person attendance at the Central European University in Budapest, Hungary.
