European University Alliance Founded with the help of SZTE has won a New Grant

Out of the 52 submitted applications, the EUGLOH Alliance is one of the 16 existing partnerships that received the grant.

The University of Szeged is a founding member of the European University Alliance for Global Health that received the green light to continue its mission and expand its impact for another 4 years. During its next phase – EUGLOH 2.0 – the Alliance will gain 4 new partners to become a consortium of 9 higher education institutions committed to creating an integrated campus with a focus on global health.


In November 2021, the European Commission posted new Erasmus+ grant calls for the total amount of 272 million EUR, which counts as an impressively high grant for shaping the European higher education scene. The aim of the call was to support existing European alliances of higher education institutions to continue their mission and expansion, as well as to establish new alliances with similar aims.


Along with 15 other existing partnerships, the expanding EUGLOH Alliance won the grant and the consent of the European Commission to continue its mission for the next 4 years. The grant will be utilized for the joint programmes and projects of the consortium.


Founding members of the European University Alliance for Global Health (EUGLOH) are Université Paris-Saclay (UPSaclay), Lund University (LU), Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU), Universidade do Porto (UPorto) and the University of Szeged (SZTE).

The strategic partnership will be expanded to an alliance of 9 universities with the addition of four new partners: University of Alcalá, University of Hamburg, University of Novi Sad and The Arctic University of Norway. Starting from 2023, the new partners will be able to enjoy the advantages and opportunities offered by the EUGLOH Alliance.


"Through the Alliance, students and staff are given a greater opportunity to collaborate across universities. The primary goal is the coordination of the interdisciplinary activities, especially on the widened education and research areas related to global health – healthy environment, nutrition, healthcare and pharmacology, well-being, etc. The partner universities get new opportunities for joint projects and the usage of scientific infrastructure on the field of biomedicine, life and social sciences, in addition to taking up new challenges in the field of traditional healthcare and well-being." – Said Prof. Dr. Márta Széll, Vice Rector for Strategic Planning at SZTE.


In addition to the academic and research staff of the universities, the students are also ’winners’ of the grant. During the current admission period, more than 6000 students have been admitted to SZTE.

SZTE Experience


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.


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.
