Marie Curie Alumni Association
About the institution
The Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) is an international non-profit organization composed of an active, global community of scientific researchers. The MCAA was established and is supported by the European Commission, but entirely run by volunteer members and with a bottom-up approach at its core. All MCAA members benefit or have benefitted from Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, which is the European Union’s reference program for doctoral education and postdoctoral training. MCAA members therefore share a strong background in research, but their career paths are diverse and touch all economic sectors. The vibrant MCAA community brings together all career stages from all scientific disciplines, encouraging networking and cooperation, making the MCAA a forum of debate between researchers and with society. The MCAA is a major platform for researchers to contribute to shaping science policy in Europe, providing career development opportunities, and supporting the wider research community on topics affecting research and researchers’ lives. The MCAA also has 33 chapters located around the world as a way of facilitating communication with its members and engaging them in the development of the MCAA.
