As we can currently observe, 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 like the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This is what "One Health" stands for. During the 1st EUGLOH Innovation days we will look for innovative solutions for such One Health challenges.
This activity is being developed within EUGLOH - the European University Alliance for Global Health - a pilot initiative funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ Program and composed by 5 European Universities (University of Paris-Saclay, Lund University, University of Szeged, Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich and University of Porto).
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?
The University of Porto will select 6 PhD students.
What can you expect?
What do you get out of it?
Certificate of participation.
This will be an online activity, led by LMU, from the 25th to the 27th of May 2020 with interaction between organizers, coach and participants from all 5 EUGLOH partner institutions. Please, see more details on the timetable and structure in the program.
Please upload your Curriculum vitae in the corresponding field of this form (up to 5Mb per file).
