North America Chapter

North America logo

The North America Chapter is an official component of the MCAA, encourages local networking, and attracts new members to the Association all over the region.

We aim to enhance the image of the MCAA in North America by organising relevant 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 North America, or nationals of any North American country [essentially USA and Canada  - but we are pretty open-hearted!] currently residing elsewhere, are welcome to become members of the North America Chapter.

Membership of the North AmericaChapter 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.
