Pinar Oztop attended the Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) General Assembly & Annual Conference which took place at Ca' Foscari University in Venice, 4-5 March, 2016. The event is gathering people who are funded by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions in the past or currently. On the first day the gathering had a conference style and members had the chance to attend talks related to science, business and career development. Also some members including Pinar Oztop presented posters on that day. The General Assembly took place on the second day and members elected a new MCAA Board and Executive Committee for the next two years. It was a great event for networking and learning more about the Marie Curie Alumni Association.
