Presidency conference in Vienna discusses future of Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme
Austria hosted the fifth Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Presidency Conference “MSCA - Beyond 2020” on 1 and 2 October 2018 at the Billrothhaus – College of Physicians in Vienna. The overall goal of the conference was to discuss, consult people on the ground and reflect on MSCA, with a special focus on the future of the programme in Horizon Europe. The impact of MSCA on individual researchers´ careers, mobility, societal challenges, and innovation potential is evident. The main key areas will remain as they proved to be successful, but will open up to new challenges and still be keeping excellence as a reference point.
On 1 October 2018, Matthew diFranco, Head of the MCAA Alumni Association, and European Commission Deputy Director General Viviane Hoffmann awarded prizes to highly promising scientists during the MSCA 2018 Presidency conference in Vienna. Nine MSCA fellows were showcased for having achieved excellent results in outreaching their MSCA project, meeting societal challenges and bridging (career) paths through a highly competitive call with around 110 digital applications.
