"Despite the intense exchange of students and researchers and the enormous human potential of the country, the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions are still poorly known in comparison to other funding and mobility options.

In order to fill this gap, several MCAA member researchers residing in Brazil have initiated talks in November 2016 to create a Brazilian chapter of the MCAA, resulting in its creation in April 2017."

They have also set out to organise scientific outreach events and cooperation initiatives between the EU and Brazil.

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

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!
