The European University Alliance for Global Health – EUGLOH is a strategic partnership between Université Paris-Saclay (France), Lund University (Sweden), University of Szeged (Hungary), University of Porto (Portugal) Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Germany), University of Alcalá (Spain), UiT The Arctic University of Norway (Norway), University of Novi Sad (Republic of Serbia) and Universität Hamburg (Germany) in the context of the European Commission’s European Universities Initiative.
The goal of the European Union initiative to form the European University Alliances is to create strategic partnerships that will strengthen quality of higher education and boost cooperation between the universities in Europe. Through the EUGLOH Alliance, students and staff will have more opportunities for cooperation and mobility of undergraduate, master and PhD students, as well as for mobility of academic and administrative staff, with the vision to create integrated virtual European campus for this large international academic community.
Areas of cooperation
The concept of Global Health largely overcomes the traditional field of health protection, and also includes factors such as the future of medicine, climate change, environmental protection challenges, preservation of biodiversity, digital health concept, etc. These topics are essential starting points for further cooperation, growth and development of partner universities gathered in the EUGLOH Alliance.
Combining expertise and scientific infrastructure in the fields such as: biomedicine, digital health, climate change and biodiversity, social sciences and humanities, healthy life styles and wellbeing, the Alliance members will tackle a number of global health challenges.
