Southeast Asia Chapter

Southeast asia

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 (hold the passport) of any Southeast Asia country [usually ASEAN member states: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam] currently residing elsewhere, are welcome to become members of the Southeast Asia Chapter.
