March 4-5, 2016 - Venice, Italy
MCAA General Assembly

The Marie Curie Alumni Association will held its annual Assembly in Venice on 4-5 March 2016. All MC fellows are invited to attend it

The MCAA Board has now made its choice amongst the various excellent proposals made by different member groups for the hosting of the 2016 MCAA General Assembly. The event will be held across two days in Venice, Italy on 4th and 5th March 2016. The winning proposal was put together by the North Italy Chapter, in cooperation with various local partners, in particular the Ca’ Foscari University.

The MCAA Board wishes to thank the other member groups and sponsors who put together a number of excellent alternative proposals; we hope that some of these exiting offers can be re-submitted for the 2017 MCAA General Assembly in due course.
