Southeast Asia Chapter | Marie Curie Alumni Association

Southeast Asia Chapter

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

We aim to enhance the image of the MCAA in Southeast Asia 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 Southeast Asia, or nationals of any Southeast Asia country [usually ASEAN member states: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam  - but we are pretty open-hearted!] currently residing elsewhere, are welcome to become members of the Southeast Asia 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.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at: se.asia.chapter@mariecuriealumni.eu

We also have country representative in most of ASEAN member states, who acts as contact persons for researchers in the region interested in learning more about the MSCA mobility opportunities and the programmes of MCAA.
