MCAA Chapters and Groups

Chapters & Groups

The MCAA has promoted the creation of Chapters in different geographic regions as a way of facilitating communication with its members and engaging them in the development of the association. MCAA Chapters are established to:

  • Encourage local networking and establish mutually-beneficial relationships between the MCAA and its alumni within a defined georgaphic zone;
  • Initiate activities that add value to the Alumni network and input to the general body;
  • Recruit, attract, support and facilitate connections between MC fellows and alumni;
  • Sponsor and support activities that will enhance the image of MCAA.

"Stress Management within Top Academics: Feeling before thinking" - Workshop at the MCAA 2019 (24-25 Feb) in Vienna
Francisco Valente Gonçalves's picture

We all know that reaching to the higher levels of academia, either by getting a tenure, gaining a PI position or any other senior role, is a very difficult task which demands a great amount of effort and persistence. In the current times, it is difficult to pretend that the path towards the top is easy and with enough space for all. Competition is becoming harder, and spaces fewer. Only the brave and courageous can get there.


Right?
Actually, wrong.
