2022 MSCA Conference : opening a new era for change

Inspire4Nature scientific coordinator Ana Rodrigues was an invited presenter at the 2022 MSCA Conference, under the  theme “Next generation MSCA: opening a new era for change”.The Conference celebrates 25 years of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions, the research programme of the European Union that funds the Inspire4Nature project. The programme included a series of presentations, and four workshops dedicated to major upcoming challenges: gender equality, the opening of science to society, the challenges of academic freedom and the Green Charter. Ana Rodrigues presented Inspire4Nature in the fourth workshop, as an example of a project that anticipated many of the recommendations of the MSCA Green Charter in attempting to reduce the environmental impacts of research and in contributing towards the objectives of the European Green Deal.

The Conference took place on the 23 May 2022, and was organised by the Université PSL (Paris Sciences & Lettres), under the sponsorship of the French Presidency of the European Union and the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation.
