At the end of February, our AWSi ESR(s) Shubham Jain and Daniel Mora joined the PERFORM team together with 800 wonderful researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs from around the world, who met for the 6th Annual Assembly & Conference organized by the Marie Curie Alumni Association held at the University of Vienna. The general theme of the conference was “Research and Innovation beyond the Information Age”. The keynote speakers of the conference included Themis Christophidou, who is the Director-general for Education, youth, sport and culture of the European Commission, among others.
The ESR(s) benefited from more than 20 interactive sessions ranging from Artificial Intelligence to researchers’ mental health, networking events, and much more. The sessions gave the ESR(s) an opportunity to be involved in the discussions among the Research community as well as network with other Marie Curie fellowship holders.
The next Marie Curie MCAA General Assembly will be next year in Zagreb, Croatia. AWSi is looking forward to participate and see you all in Zagreb! As MCAA said “Let’s make the 7th GA & Conference even bigger and better!”.
