She has considerable experience as both a team leader and member in implementing cross-sector and multi-stakeholder projects co-funded by the National Science Centre, National Bank of Poland, Capital City of Warsaw, various ministries, EU Programmes (Horizon 2020, Lifelong Learning Programme, Erasmus+, Creative Europe), and others. As of 2021, she is a coordinator of the SGH team in the AMENET project – “The European Union, Mediterranean and Africa Integration in the Global Age” (2018-2021) of Erasmus+ Programme (Jean Monnet Networks, consortium leader: Universidad Autónoma de Madrid) as well as a vice-coordinator of the SGH team in the project Welcoming Spaces – "Investing in 'Welcoming Spaces' in Europe: revitalizing shrinking areas by hosting non-EU migrants" (2020-2024) of Horizon 2020 Framework Programme (consortium leader: Utrecht University). She coordinated the EUMIGRO project – “Jean Monnet Module on the European Union and the Contemporary International Migration – an Interdisciplinary Approach” (Erasmus+ Programme, 2016–2019) implemented at SGH and the EUSHARE project – “Connecting the European Union of Shared Aims, Freedoms, Values and Responsibilities” (Erasmus+ Programme, 2016–2020) conducted by the Polish European Community Studies Association (PECSA). She is on the Board of the PECSA and the Research Committee RC46 ‘Migration and Citizenship’ of the International Political Science Association (IPSA). She supports the European Commission Representation in Poland as an EU expert member of the Team Europe network. She is also a member of the International Steering Committee of the Metropolis Project, focused on international migration and migration policies. She was a Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre for European Studies of the Sciences Po Paris (2015). She was a Visiting Professor in Bratislava (2015) and Tartu (2016). She is a member of several national and international associations, including UACES, IMISCOE, IPSA, IASF, IPPA. She has authored or co-authored book chapters, journal articles, working papers, research reports, and other texts in Polish, English or French covering international relations and economics, migration studies and EU studies, which has given her considerable experience and expertise to co-edit books and special issues of journals highly recognized by international publishers (including Wiley, Routledge, and Emerald). She has for many years now been a reviewer of various interdisciplinary scientific journals and project proposals (e.g., under Horizon 2020). Marta’s main research interests include EU studies and migration studies.
