Are you considering submitting an application for the next MSCA call?


Dear All, hope you and your loved ones are well.


I am Marco (Mason), a MCAA member. I am a lecturer at the School of Design at the Northumbria University UK.

I was Marie S. Curie fellow until December 2018. I obtained two MSCA fellowships (2012-2015 IOF and 2016-2018IF) and almost an ERC Starting grant in 2017 (final interview in Brussel). I have worked with prestigious centres such as the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester UK, Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT, and the University of Cambridge. 

One of my current career goals is to become an MSCA supervisor. I would love to supervise this kind of research and make at disposal my personal and professional experience. For me, it has been “life-changing.” I have extensive experience in conducting scientific research at the MSCA level, as well as on proposal writing and evaluation, grant management, and mentoring. I have a large network of contacts in the UK, EU, USA, and AUS. 

My field is Design Research and Innovation, and Digital Media Research for Cultural Heritage and Creative Industries (and neighbouring fields). More details about my research here:

If you are considering to apply for the coming MSCA call in September 2020, would you or your colleagues be interested in collaborating with me, and having my support? (e.g. with me as the main supervisor or supervisor for a secondment period). We can create a mutually-beneficial relationship! Just drop me an email and we will see if there is a “good chemistry” and mutually-beneficial interests!

Looking forward to hearing from you! 

All the best wishes
