On September 28th I had an interesting meeting with Cristina Paducea, Project Officer of the European Commission - Research Executive Agency, and several MSCA fellows, at Frascati City Hall. This event was organized by Frascati Scienza (https://www.frascatiscienza.it/), as part of the European Researchers' Night 2018. We discussed lots of topics relevant to MSCA Fellows living in Italy. The bureaucracy and lack of institutional support seems to be a really common problem in Italy for MSCA fellows. The PO suggested that we should try to use the MCAA to help newcomers with settling down and provide guidelines on necessary paperwork.
I will used this opportunity to welcome our new members, who attended this meeting, Elham Mousavian and Muhammad Hamidullah!
