1st EUGLOH Innovation days on One Health challenges

May 25th – 27th 2020 online, provided by LMU Munich, Germany


In our globalised world, health can no longer be viewed only in terms of the human being. Instead, a holistic approach and interdisciplinary cooperation including environmental and social sciences as well as veterinary medicine is needed to address current health problems.
This is what "One Health" stands for. For more information, watch this video!

What are the Innovation days about?
Development and prototyping of innovative ideas to tackle current One Health challenges. For example, an app that helps farmers to screen diseases in their animals, e.g. for trypanosomiasis in cows, which can be transmitted to humans via tse tse flies.

Who can participate?
Up to 30 researchers and PhD students from the five EUGLOH universities (Paris-Saclay, Lund University, University of Porto, University of Szeged, LMU) who are interested in finding innovative solutions or already have a concrete idea of how to tackle One Health problems in the world.

What can you expect?
Practicing key competences like Ideation und Pitching. Getting to know tools to implement your ideas from User Exploration to Prototyping. Hands on sessions on Mock-up construction. Contact with researchers and entrepreneurs from different fields and with various expertise.

What do you get out of it?

SZTE Experience

My name is Olney Rodrigues de Oliveira and I am from Brazil. I am currently pursuing my PhD studies in the Doctoral School of Education at SZTE. I chose the University of Szeged because it’s one of the best universities in Europe, especially in the field of education. I personally love Szeged because it is safe and I love the architecture, the cultural events, the local Market Mars Tér and so many other beautiful destinations. For my studies I wanted to have an excellent university in a good quality life city and Szeged offers me that. It’s neither too big nor too small, I can ride my bike to go to my classes and practically everything is within a walking distance. I would advise the prospective students to enjoy the city during their stay, the cultural and historical events, know other international students and make a lot of friends, visit other cities in Hungary and make good memories. I am pretty sure that you will be proud of this priceless experience. Before coming to Hungary I worked several years as a teacher. I love the academic environment, the libraries, relationship with students and the feeling to be involved in the acquisition of new knowledge. That is why I plan to be part of a University as a professor as well as to keep researching in different aspects of the process of education. I am so thankful to be here and I believe that the Universe brought me to Szeged because the city and the University are the experience that I need in my life now.

I am a PhD student and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder from the Philippines. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Environmental Science and I happen to be in my 3rd year of studies. I chose University of Szeged because its one of the top ranked research university in Hungary known for its good reputation in the fields of health and natural sciences. Coming from the Philippines with a warm climate, I had huge preference of Szeged for my studies, the city having the most rays of sunshine and considered to be the warmest place in Hungary. I would advise all the prospective students to join University of Szeged’s diverse and vibrant community! Don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone, try to find and establish your niche in a new place like what I did. I didn’t regret coming to Szeged as it continuously provides me an enabling learning environment for various reasons, has affordable cost of living, very safe and calm university town, organized transport system, beautiful and clean surroundings with the very sightly Tisza River which adds to its appeal, and also holds many festivals throughout the year. After graduation, I am planning to go back to my home institution and continue my teaching duties at the University of the Philippines Los Baños
