Université Paris-Saclay (France), Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (Germany), Lund University (Sweden), University of Porto (Portugal) and University of Szeged (Hungary) have created a pilot European University called “European University Alliance for Global Health”, inspired by European values and committed to education for global challenges of health and well-being.
Coordinated by Université Paris-Saclay with the active involvement of all its member institutions, the project has been selected for the first European Universities call for proposals launched by the European Commission as part of the Erasmus+ programme.
The European alliance EUGLOH focuses on a unifying and transdisciplinary topic, global health, in order to deal with major societal challenges. The five universities thus aim to combine their expertise and resources to offer the best education to their students thanks to the excellence of their programmes and their cutting-edge research and equipment.
