The University of Szeged is participating in the EUGLOH event in Lund, Sweden, from 9 to 12 May 2022. Representatives from the five European university associations share their experience, this time focusing on marketing, communication and possible new joint projects.
The European University Alliance for Global Health (EUGLOH) is a strategic partnership between the Université Paris-Saclay (UPSaclay), the University of Lund (LU), the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU), the Universidade do Porto (UPorto) and the University of Szeged (SZTE). The network enables students, teachers, researchers and staff of the higher education institutions concerned to collaborate in a number of areas. The primary objective of the organisation is to coordinate interdisciplinary activities, particularly in education and training in global health. New opportunities can be opened up, such as joint professional projects and the use of scientific infrastructure in areas such as biomedicine, life sciences and social sciences. The inter-university project also addresses a number of challenges related to well-being and public health.
In the framework of the cooperation, the universities in the alliance also organise joint conferences on different themes. The University of Szeged hosted the most recent EUGLOH Staff Week, where Barbara Oakley, a world-renowned expert on education, was one of the keynote speakers.
This week's EUGLOH Staff Week is hosted by the University of Lund, Sweden.
As part of the event, for the third year running, an international "Alliance Day" will be held to bring the five partner universities together to celebrate the unity and community that has existed for three years. The theme of the hybrid (face-to-face and virtual) English-language event is "Five Universities, One Community". Its objective is to reach out to and bring together all university citizens of the Federation on 11 May 2022, through a diverse range of community and cultural activities organised by the partner universities. Anyone can participate in the virtual event, but registration is required. The detailed programme and registration form are available here.
In addition to students from the University of Szeged, several staff members from relevant departments of the University of Szeged have travelled to Sweden to participate in discussions and lectures on potential inter-university partnerships, marketing and communication practices.
Participants expect to make significant progress in a number of areas: deepening personal working relationships, sharing good practices and learning about the internationalisation strategy of the University of Lund. University of Szeged staff will also work on expanding the international network of contacts in Lund.
The results and experiences of the event will be reported on the website and Facebook profile of the University of Szeged.
