United Kingdom Chapter

United kingdom logo

The UK Chapter is an initiative of Marie Curie fellows and alumni from a range of institutions located in the UK.

We believe that being part of the “Marie Curie Alumni Association” and of a geographical chapter enables MC fellows and alumni to actively operate on a local basis and facilitate stronger connections. Ultimately, this will help achieve the objectives of the MCA Association.

We indeed share the aims and objectives of the MCA Association and intend to embed them into all our activities.


Aims and objectives:

To encourage local networking and to establish a mutually-beneficial relationships between MCAA and its alumni in the UK (or with UK connections);

To initiate activities, events, seminars, and webinars that add value to the Alumni network and prospective Marie Curie applicants;

To create a network of MC fellows and alumni connecting universities and research centres and encouraging communication and collaborations;

To recruit, attract, support and facilitate the exchange of knowledge among MC fellows and alumni;

To sponsor and support activities that will enhance the image of MCAA.


Check out our different communication channels and sign up for our newsletter. All the links here!


We encourage you to join our chapter if you are interested in (i) networking with other fellows and alumni in the UK, (ii) increasing awareness and visibility of the MCAA, and (iii) supporting new MCAA members to settle in the region.

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.
