Who we are

The Brazil Chapter is an official component of the MCAA, and encourages local networking and attracts new members to the Association within all parts of the country.

We aim to enhance the image of the MCAA in Brazil by organising interesting events and innovative activities. We would like to share our experiences as researchers, to highlight the benefits of Marie Curie Actions, and of the MCAA Association, and to communicate our ideas of the world as a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary community.

All MCAA members residing in Brazil, or Brazilian nationals residing elsewhere, 

are welcome to become members of the Brazil Chapter.

Membership of the Chapter is free! Just click on the 'Join Group' logo at the top of the right-hand column, and we would be happy to welcome you.

For the year 2018-2019, the main aim for the Brazil chapter is to strengthen the relationship among the members and the organization of the II MCAA BREUW.

 By prioritizing the activities where the members are beneficiary (professional training, funds for the GA, Meetings), we aim to increase participation in the activities, and to highlight the advantages of being an active member in the chapter and therefore in the association.

 Disseminate MCAA and the MCAA Brazil Chapter by recruiting new members: at Universities (Federal and State), Research Institutes (Embrapa, Fiocruz, Instituto Adolfo Lutz, Instituto Biológico etc.) and Industries.

 Nevertheless, as per previous year, we will also dedicate to research communication, and the chapter aims to organize a Newsletter to report the chapter activities, disseminate research links, and to encourage interaction with external partners.

 Promote interaction with external and Brazilian funding agencies: EURAXESS, CNPq, CAPES, DAAD, CONFAP, Fapesp/SP,  Academia Brasileira de Ciências,

Brazilian Humbolt Kolleg, MSCA,  Serrapilheira).
