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?
Certificate of participation. For information on recognition within your PhD program, contact your local coordinator.

What about the costs?

Hamza Baniata – Faculty of Science and Informatics

I am Hamza Baniata, a first-year student at the Doctoral School of Computer Science, and I am From Jordan. SZTE is continuously supporting research and it has an internationally recognized, highly ranked group of professors. It also offers courses and research topics that are strongly related to my research field; Cloud Computing, Fog Computing and Internet of Things. All of this motivated me to apply to the University/Department of Software Engineering. Szeged is a calm city, full of love and peace. The University of Szeged is similar to the city, which provides the perfect environment for creation and development. Studying at the university requires a high level of effort, commitment and seriousness. Applying to the university and having these characteristics are my two pieces of advice to prospective students. It is very early to define my future now, but I am planning to apply to a research position in my field after graduation and if I had the opportunity, I would love to contribute my effort and knowledge in advancing such a wonderful and respected university.

Ahmad Adha - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

I am Ahmad Adha from Indonesia and currently a 3rd year student in Theoretical Linguistics PhD program. I chose the University of Szeged (SZTE) as my study destination because it is located in the center of the town and it is also the highest ranked university in Hungary. The university staff and the professors were very accommodating and understanding when I decided to change the program that suits my research topic. I am so glad that I can be a part of my current department, and of course SZTE, since it is also the Center of Pragmatic Research which aims to promote advanced linguistic pragmatic research with international collaborations. After graduating, I wish to continue to work in my academic field as a professor and a researcher. My advice for prospective SZTE students is to choose a university with a good academic reputation that fits their passion.
