MCAA Upcoming Events


Dear MCAA members,

See all the MCAA Upcoming Events that will be happening in different parts of the globe:

  •          Webinar: Mobile Researchers and the Challenge of the Network: How to maintain Professional Connections over Time and Space?

In a fast-paced world, extreme mobility is a norm in researchers' lives. Mobility is deemed beneficial for career development because it widens the professional networks; yet, it also makes them shallow. Our webinar will explore the range of possibilities open to researchers who move back and forth across the Atlantic.

Date: 11 September 2019
Time: 18.00h - 20.00h CET

Additional information

  •          Support to H2020 applications

A number of H2020 calls are planned in 2020, which might be interesting to our members, or to non-members, who would like to have MCAA as a partner in their applications.  If that is your case, do not wait, please contact the Research Funding Working Group (RFWG) of MCAA @ before 1 December.  Please state clearly in your initial e-mail what contribution you expect from MCAA and what resources, financial or otherwise, will be made available to MCAA within the project.  The RFWG has a preference for projects for which at least one MCAA member acts as a stable contact point to the project.  Please make sure to identify that person.

Best regards,
On behalf of the MCAA
