Western Balkans Chapter

Western balkans

The Western Balkans Chapter has been created as a forum for interaction between MCAA members originating from, and/or currently based in, territories in the Western Balkans region [Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo (under UN Security Council Resolution 1244), North Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia] where there is no existing MCAA Chapter.

The Western Balkans Chapter aims to connect and represent MSCA fellows and MCAA alumni from the Western Balkan region, with many of them residing abroad and being part of the so-called “scientific diaspora”. We are advocating for best practice in science and research in the region and the adoption of policies and approaches that should help science in the Balkans reach wider European and global standards.

All MCAA members with the nationality of one of the Western Balkans countries, or any MCAA member residing in this geographical area, are welcome to become a member of the Western Balkans Chapter.


Membership of the Chapter is free – but we hope you will contribute your energy and enthusiasm to support our activities


To join the Chapter, you need to be logged in as an MCAA member - you will then be able to click on the 'Join group' at the top of the column on the right - one of the Chapter management team will then admit you as a Chapter member.

For any inquiry about the Western Balkan Chapter, please contact western-balkans.chapter@mariecuriealumni.eu.
