Paris-Sud University is involved in a European University project along with its partners in the Paris-Saclay COMUE

 

Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich (Germany), Lund University (Sweden), Porto University (Portugal), Szeged University (Hungary) and Paris-Saclay University, which Paris-Sud is one of the founding members of, have come together to create a European university pilot project, the European University Alliance for Global Health (EUGLOH), based on European values and committed to education on global healthcare and well-being issues.

It is one of the consortiums which have just been selected for funding as part of the first “European Universities” pilot project's call for proposals supported by the Erasmus+ 2019 programme. Out of 54 proposals submitted in response to the call, the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Education and Culture selected 17 European university alliances, which will receive funding for their projects to become the “European universities of the future.”

Acting together to respond to global healthcare challenges

The European alliance, EUGLOH, aims to deploy a unifying and cross-disciplinary theme, global healthcare, to tackle societal challenges of the utmost importance.

Through EUGLOH, the five universities intend to combine their expertise and methods to this end to provide their students with the best education, by drawing on the excellence of their teaching, as well as research and state-of-the-art equipment.

EUGLOH is based on a balanced consortium with complementary universities, whose distinctiveness and variety are mainly based on the excellence and complementarity of the partners in interdisciplinary fields related to global healthcare and well-being issues, like medicine of the future (predictive, preventative, participatory and personalised), emerging diseases, digital health and technologies (big data, AI, robotics, etc.), climate change, its impact and the health of ecosystems, the right to healthcare, public health policies, welfare economics, etc.

It benefits from a set of specific technological and research infrastructure supporting education and research training (including two synchrotrons, state-of-the-art lasers, exceptional MRI platforms, etc.).

Located on campuses in dynamic and diverse socio-economic areas, EUGLOH will involve approximately 200,000 students, from undergraduate to doctorate level, as well as academic and non-academic staff from the five universities.

By 2025, 50% of the alliance’s graduates will have benefited from mobility (physical and/or virtual) at least once during the course of their study.
