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?

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

Nikki - Faculty of Health Sciences and Social Studies

My name is Nikki and I am from Iran. Currently I am a second year student studying Physiotherapy at the University of Szeged. I really like the Environment of Szeged as it is a true University City where you can meet people from around the world. I consider Szeged as my second home since I have established my own path here and I have a lot of friends who make me feel home. The reason why I came to Szeged is because I was informed by one of my friends about the fact that the University degrees are EU accredited and will help me to reach my goals and open doors for future job opportunities. Once I have obtained my degree, I would like to stay in Hungary and pursue a post graduate program. Later on I will seize the opportunity to gain some job experience in my field here in Hungary before I hold my ground in Europe.
